Description Tom Hassler 2002-04-12 18:02:36 UTC
After installing Gentoo Linux I wanted to setup the pcmcia file for the 
dependencies with my network card (3c589).  The script /etc/init.d/pcmcia is 
specifically mentioned in the installation documentation but does not exist.  I 
assume I can emerge the pcmcia-cs, but I see there are problems with this if 
you have compiled pcmcia support into the Kernel.

Can I get the definitive way to set this up and how I might best remedy the

just for giggles I used the Boot disk kernel to emerge the pcmcia-cs to my 
system.  Seems to have worked despite comments on here that it might not.  I 
saw that it delivered the /etc/init.d/pcmcia that I was expecting along with 
the conf.d files.  I rebooted and it seems to work... on to emerging KDE.
