Description poletti.marco 2012-10-31 11:29:43 UTC
Disclaimer: this bug has been filed in a semi-automated manner.

When emerging the package sys-apps/pcmciautils-014-r1, the following elog messages are displayed:

 * If you relied on pcmcia-cs to automatically load the appropriate
 * PCMCIA-related modules upon boot, you need to add 'pcmcia' and the
 * PCMCIA socket driver you need for this system (yenta-socket,
 * i82092, i82365, ...) to /etc/modules.autoload.d/kernel-2.6

Such messages should only be displayed when the package is upgraded from an old enough package (and possibly for new installs).
These situations can be checked in the ebuild as follows:

if has_version '<sys-apps/pcmciautils-1.0'; then

Or, if the message should also be displayed for new installs:

if !has_version 'sys-apps/pcmciautils' || has_version '<sys-apps/pcmciautils-1.0'; then

Remember to replace 1.0 with the right version number.

See the tracker bug 440214 for more details.
