Description Philip Mateescu 2002-09-08 14:18:02 UTC
In the installation doc at step 4 it is described how to run :
cardmgr -f
and then to insert the pcmcia card (a network card in this case).

Doing that causes cardmgr to attempt to launch the /etc/pcmcia/network script
which makes (right at the top of the file) a reference to sed. And sed is not
available at this stage of the install.
Here's a snippet of the error:
cardmgr[167]: executing: ' ./network start eth0'
cardmgr[167]: + ./network: sed: command not found
cardmgr[167]: + ./network: /bin/hostname: No such file or directory
cardmgr[167]: + ./network: /etc/init.d/net.eth0: No such file or directory
cardmgr[167]: start cmd exited with status 127 

without network, nothing really works, does it ?

Can anyone verify this?

Comment 2 John Davis (zhen) (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-09-29 12:35:50 UTC
Is this confirmed?

Comment 3 John Davis (zhen) (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-10-15 16:41:01 UTC
This is the fix:
Add a note that they should execute cardmgr -f BEFORE going into the chroot. I
will fix this soon.

I fixed this. Check the build.xml in CVS.
