25.1 Controlling PCMCIA Cards Using pccardctl

Card management is normally handled by udev and hotplug without requiring any user interaction at all. pccardctl offers manual control of the card in case the automated process does not work flawlessly.

The following is a list of the most important pccardctl commands. All commands must be executed as root:

pccardctl insert

If the card has not been detected automatically, notify the client drivers that the card has just been inserted.

pccardctl eject

Eject the card manually and notify the client drivers that it will be ejected. Cut power to the socket. This option is especially useful if you noticed problems with suspend and resume as described in Section 25.3.2, General Suspend Issues with PCMCIA.

pccardctl suspend

Shut down and disable power for a socket, but do not eject the card (unbind the appropriate modules).

pccardctl resume

After a pccardctl resume, bring up power for the socket and restore the configuration from before the suspend event.

For further information, refer to the manual page of pccardctl.
