/etc/init.d/network contains the following 3 lines:
ifconfig lo 127.0.0.1
route add -net 127.0.0.0
Needless to say, it doesn't do much... but it is identical to the script
on the other laptop. Clearly the pcmcia stuff is not found in that script.
/etc/init.d/pcmcia start does not solve the problem either. sum pcmcia
and cksum pcmcia gives the same result on both laptops, so I assume the
scripts are identical, so the fault is not in that script either. Most of
the configuration stuff for pcmcia seems to be in /etc/pcmcia. Shall I
start comparing files in that directory?
