Re: pcmcia

I didn't say Sarge, I said Testing. He said Testing. Once Sarge is 
branched off, Testing will become completely unreliable and remain so 
for an unpredictable period.

Unstable has the latest kernels, which I took from his note to be a 
prerequisite. It also works quite well. It's "unstable" aspect merely 
means that updates aught to be done carefully and manually. If it 
doesn't work well for you, such is life.

I agree with you that Sarge is well past due. Sure I have opinions 
about how the installer could have been done that would have saved 
many months, but I'm neither a developer nor major contributor. I 
must, like the rest of us mere users, allow these volunteers to do 
what they see fit to deliver something they are satisfied with. I am 
pleased they do it at all.

In the mean time, I will recommend what works for the environment that 
is being asked about.
