Re: pcmcia-cs in Woody

Ob Debian-laptop:  I notice that pcmcia-cs in "pure" woody is still

...it works?

I got revved to 3.1.36 today on a 2.2 kernel.  The install/config are
based on 2.4, and break networking rather badly, based on both kernel
modules and card/driver associations.  For the gory details, see



Errr... that's not "3.1.36" you wrote in your bug report.  It's "3.1.31-6"
or the 6th build of .31 ... I think.

But you're posilutely right.  Ouchie!  I would have never run into that --
more likely other things -- I have a Ricoh bridge.  (Hardly surprising
as I've a Ricoh laptop)

As we get more lures towards buying new toys for our laptops the disparity
between "because they work" and "but the mappings/modules are only in the new code" will just get worse. We really have to make them get this nailed
down before woody is sealed in metel-oxides and plastic.

Yeah, I wish I read this earlier....
I'm so trashed right now on PCMCIA that nothing is working.

Now I've gotten this starting today and I don't even know where it came from. Is this related? Something changed and I can't figure out what. I did run a upgrade from testing this morning. But it wasn't until I removed my card and tried to reinsert it again that it died on me. /lib/modules/2.4.17-2.0/pcmcia/i82365.o: unresolved symbol isapnp_find_dev_R9991be23

I am so stuck!
