Do you have symlinks or modules in /lib/modules/<version>/pcmcia?
I suspect my problems are unique to the modules I'm using:
i82365: The i82365 module depends on isa-pnp. If the
above-mentioned directory is present, the
/etc/init.d/pcmcia script uses insmod instead of
modprobe to load i82365, so the isa-pnp module doesn't
get loaded as it should.
orinoco: It's not possible to build orinoco modules into the
pcmcia-modules package without _also_ building them
into the kernel-image package (unless you do the build
twice and futz with the configuration in-between).
Unfortunately the kernel-sources and pcmcia-sources
have different (incompatible) versions of orinico
support, and /etc/init.d/pcmcia mixes them together.
My next attempt is to hack up the debian/rules file for the
kernel so that it does not create the directory
/lib/modules/<version>/pcmcia. That way /etc/init.d/pcmcia
doesn't get fooled into thinking that pcmcia-modules is
installed and it should then use modprobe (which will load
isa-pnp). That way I also get more up-to-date drivers.
