can't shut down properly


I've just installed redhat 9 a presario 2543AP. I couldn't shut down properly because the system would hang when it's shutting down the pcmcia card services. How would I overcome this without having to remove the pcmcia card support?

Re: can't shut down properly

Do you actually have any devices IN the PCICMA slots at the time?

Do you get any errors showing up in your /var/log/mesages file?

You might want to try issuing 'service pcmcia stop' when the machine is up at some point, see if it just hangs there. If it does, modify /etc/init.d/pcmcia, throw a '-x' on the first line as an argument, and run it again, see where it falls over.
One long-haired git at your service...

Re: can't shut down properly

I do not have any PCMCIA device in the PCMCIA slot. /var/log/messages show these following lines:-

chinhui kernel: PCI: Sharing IRQ 11 with 00:0c.0
chinhui kernel: spurious 8259A interrupt: IRQ7.
chinhui kernel: Yenta IRQ list 02b8, PCI irq11
chinhui kernel: Socket status: 30000007
chinhui cardmgr[3172]: starting, version is 3.1.31
chinhui cardmgr[3172]: watching 1 sockets
chinhui cardmgr[3172]: Card Services release does not match
chinhui kernel: cs: IO port probe 0x0c00-0x0cff: clean.

chinhui kernel: cs: IO port probe 0x0a00-0x0aff: clean.

I'm not sure which line to modify in the /etc/init.d/pcmcia file. Where would i pass it as an argument?

Another problem is that, I can't use any usb devices. Once I attach a usb device into the usb 2.0 ports, the system would hang. Please advice. Thank You

Re: can't shut down properly

He just ask to add this kind of line at the beginning of the script:
set -x
This argument will write everything on the console when executing the script.
