Description Markus Rothe (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-01-21 12:59:39 UTC

as you added the firmware for my wireless lan card to the live cd, I noticed,
that I have to load the pcmcia module by hand, because hotplug doesn't so.

Or that is to say: "modprobe yenta_socket" && unplug wireless card && plug in
back in results in a working (=noticed) wireless card.

If I don't do that dmesg doesn't show anything about unpluging the card or pluging
it back in.

the "dopcmcia" option of the live cd 'solved' this..
