Nobody had built such a package.  Anyhow, I have now built this package
to accompany version 3.1.10-1 of pcmcia-cs, and I have uploaded it to

Please keep in mind that I'm not the only person in the world who can
build PCMCIA packages.  The PCMCIA sources work with make-kpkg and are
not very difficult to use.  They don't require debhelper or any other
special stuff to build (unlike the kernel-image-2.2.14-compact source).
Therefore, if someone is building a kernel-image-2.2.14-compact package,
which could be installed on laptops, then he SHOULD also build a
pcmcia-modules-2.2.14-compact package to accompany it, or at the very
least, he should tell me about this package, so that I can build the
pcmcia-modules package.

I'm sorry to complain, but nobody ever tells me ANYTHING!  I have a
life; I don't have time to scan the distribution every week or so to see
whether somebody has uploaded a new kernel-image package.

Well, the pcmcia-modules-2.2.14-compact has been built and uploaded to
go into unstable.  I'll leave it to the archive maintainers to decide
whether it should also be shifted over into frozen.
