Re: pcmcia problem with 2.4.19
Thanks to Derek and Neal for the fix. Changing to PCIC=yenta_socket
fixed the problem and the card is working again now. Thanks to you

That was poor wording on my part. I meant it was required for *me*. I
was referring to the following paragraphs in
Xircom CardBus cards are supported by a separate driver ('Xircom
Tulip-like CardBus', xircom_tulip_cb, CONFIG_PCMCIA_XIRTULIP). Hot
plug PCI drivers are not managed by cardmgr; they are managed by the
"hotplug" subsystem. See http://linux-hotplug.sourceforge.net for
information about this new facility. When cardmgr sees a card that is
owned by a hot plug PCI driver, it will ignore that card. There will
be one beep when these cards are inserted/ejected, but they will be
identified only as a "CardBus hotplug device" in the log files.
o With the introduction of the Hot Plug PCI subsystem, CardBus drivers
now no longer act like other PCMCIA drivers; most obviously, they
don't interact with the PCMCIA device configuration scripts. These
devices are configured using the "hotplug" scripts.
