kernel panic on ze4101

when trying to install either mandrake 9 or redhat8, I get a kernel panic at the same sport, when its trying to detect pcmcia cards.. im thinking its because its one of the newer models with a newer chipset than is supported, but I need a confirmation of it..

Re: kernel panic on ze4101

as far as i know, mandrake always had problems with pcmcia cards during the install.
just leave you pcmcia cards out during the install, and insert them when the install is complete and you are going to boot for the first time.

Re: kernel panic on ze4101

I got the same problem for ze4101.

How to deal with it?

When I tried to install RedHat7.1. I found the power adapter is too hot. And the I do not know how to configure the X-window. Text mode works okey. But I could not boot into XP. when I run /sbin/lilo it said "partition entry not found". When I tried to install Grub /sbin/grub-install /dev/hda it said no bios something. I forgot.

Any ideas thanks.

I have the same problem. I hope there will be a solution soon, or on the auction block she goes.

Re: kernel panic on ze4101

OK, is kind of stupid to reply
5 minutes after my own post but..

In order to instlal Red Hat 73.
you need to give at the beginning linux nopcmcia option.

It allows to install but
it does not allow to use
PCMCIA.

Re: kernel panic on ze4101

OK, again replying to my own popst. I got RH 7.3 runing.
No PCMCIA though.
Procedure:

1. install with
linux nopcmcia option given
at the beginning

2. during or after
installation give boot option
nomce

3. during or after installation
turn off pcmcia start on boot
through removing the
link from /etc/rc.d/rc5.d
or /etc/rc.d/rc3.d
