7.2.1 PCMCIA

/etc/modules may need to contain the following for some old PCMCIA to function:

     # ISA PnP driver
     isa-pnp
     # New Low level PCMCIA driver
     # yenta_socket # does not seem to be needed in my case

The rest is taken care of by PCMCIA scripts (from the pcmcia-cs package), depmod and kmod. I think I needed isa-pnp because my laptop is an old ISA-PCMCIA. Recent laptops with CardBus/PCMCIA may not require this.

Voice of the genius Miquel van Smoorenburg [email protected]:

"I simply removed the entire pcmcia stuff from the laptop here at work, including the cardmgr etc and just installed a 2.4 kernel with cardbus support, and the new hotplug package from woody.

As long as you only have 32-bit cards you don't need the pcmcia package; 2.4 has card services built in. And the standard tulip driver should work fine with your dlink card.

—Mike."

See Linux PCMCIA HOWTO and Network configuration and PCMCIA, Section 10.8.5.
