Making PCMCIA detection work in Babbage server

Server was preconfigured to have PCMCIA disabled. 1.) Found startup scripts were disabled. They had renamed the startup scripts in these runlevels (2-5) to kill scripts. # mv /etc/rc.d/rc2.d/K96pcmcia /etc/rc.d/rc2.d/S09pcmcia (repeat this for rc3.d, rc4.d, rc5.d directories). 2.) Still gettting "no pcmcia driver in /proc/devices" in /var/log/messages. Also get when you do 'cardctl -v -o' (-o means run once in foreground, -v means verbose) Check file /etc/sysconfig/pcmcia. It looked like: PCMCIA=no PCIC= PCIC_OPTS= CORE_OPTS= It should look like: [kws@localhost sysconfig]$ more pcmcia PCMCIA=yes PCIC=yenta_socket PCIC_OPTS= CORE_OPTS= This is a Dell laptop, all laptops seem to have the same config.

Installing Webmin on Fedora FC1 Note that for FC3 or later, instead of added to /etc/yum.conf, you add a new file /etc/fum/repos.d/dag.repo (see above links). FC1: instructions: 1.) Add this section to /etc/yum.conf, or create the file /etc/yum.repos.d/dag.repo with these contents:) [dag] name=Dag RPM Repository for Fedora Core baseurl=$releasever/en/$basearch/dag gpgcheck=1 enabled=1 2.) Add key for dag to rpm: [root@localhost etc]# rpm --import 3.) Install webmin: (with the other dependencies): [root@localhost etc]# yum install webmin Gathering header information file(s) from server(s) Server: Fedora Core 1 - i386 - Base Server: Dag RPM Repository for Fedora Core Server: Fedora Core 1 - i386 - Released Updates Finding updated packages Downloading …
