try grep-ing /var/lib/dpkg/info/pcmcia-modules*.list for pcmcia.  that
may tell you where the modules are actually being installed -- the
location should look like:


alternatively, you can look under /lib/modules/*/pcmcia and compare
the dates on the files.

what do you get as the result of the command:

  uname -a


that should tell you what kernel version you are running.  suppose the
output of uname -a contains something like "2.0.36".  then the
relevant place for the pcmcia modules is:


you probably want pcmcia modules for the kernel version you are using.

a temporary workaround (which may or may not work) is to try making a
symbolic link from the actual directory which the pcmcia modules got
installed to, to where they ought to be.  note: if there are already
files in the "correct" location, you may want to back those up
somewhere first.
