Yes, for udev. I repeat that hotplug is not installable because it conflicts
with udev. If I install hotplug it removes udev and vice-versa.
Further testing reveals that the debian kernel 2.6.18-3 gives the same results
and the cisco card remains idle and no device is created even after modprobe
I managed to make the cisco card to work, as previously said, only with my
184.108.40.206 enabling the deprecated ioctl pcmcia interface, which gives the odd
device name "eth2_rename" (after some minutes) which then I need to configure
manually, which is unsatisfactory.
If the ioctl pcmcia is not enabled, then no device is created.
On this laptop no Windows system survives and LINUX POWER reigns UNLIMITED.
