View Full Version : From those who know.. (I hope)

Forst of all let me say I love this place. While setting up my desktop as well as my notebook (HR Pavillion zd7010us) I found the words of those here invaluable. I got the whole darn thing working (well almost, I have no clue where to start to get the card reader running) including my wireless lan ;).
Here is the issue I could use apointer on. During startup I have it set to fire the WiFi, trick is it tries to do it before the PCMCIA is loaded so it fails every time. How can I reorder the startup processes?
Thanks in advance for at least taking time to read this and I look forward to learning ALOT more from those here.

well you have several ways to do it. first one is to reorder startup sequence. may be a bit tricky. I don't exactly remember in which order FC2 does it (I use FC1 now) but you do this like that (as root):
% chkconfig --del pcmcia
% chkconfig --del network
and now you have to edit /etc/init.d/pcmcia and /etc/init.d/network to change the order... order is represented by numbers in header of each file as:
# rc.pcmcia 1.39 2001/10/04 12:30:05 (David Hinds)
# This is designed to work in BSD as well as SysV init setups. See
# the HOWTO for customization instructions.
# Tags for Red Hat init configuration tools
# chkconfig: 2345 9 91
9 is for startup priority 91 is for shutdown priority... you have to come with own values for network and pcmcia to go in proper order... when you finish editing just do:
% chkconfig --add network
% chkconfig --add pcmcia
and it should be OK.

Seems to have worked wonderfully I just changed the numbers between the 2, I did find a neat oddity though.... my wireless works fine I have a hardware cutoff switch and of course the ability to disable (turn off) however if I leave that hardware switch in the on position or turn it on on a level 3 boot I get the most ungodly bunch of local_bh_enable errors that I have ever seen.... I mean its a scrolling nightmare until I physically turn off the switch.
So now I have 2 issues, resolution of the switch and the card reader LOL. I do love a puzzle though and I fancy this alot if for no other reason than the total lack of BSOD.

I am attempting to setup the same laptop with FC2... Is there any knowledge you can spread my way ? I understand you were (as of this post) unable to have the wireless lan, the card reader and sound... any success lately ?
