Description Christian Loitsch 2002-03-05 06:14:48 UTC
1 bug:  in the ebuild-script newins is called with only 1 parameter
/etc/pcmcia.conf and (don't ask me why) /etc/init.d/pcmcia are not
installed.  As the pcmcia-cs package provides its /etc/init.d/pcmcia
script this produces "strange" results:
no /mnt/.init.d/started link
dependencies don't work...
it took me quite some time to realize that it was the wrong script.

2 bug:  add the -f flag to the cardmgr in the /etc/init.d/pcmcia
script.  Otherwise you introduce a race condition, where even though
cardmgr is started, e.g. eth0 is not created and /etc/init.d/net.eth0
needs it already.  The -f flag lets cardmgr stay in foreground until
having "treated" all cards inserted.

The "newins ${FILESDIR}/pcmcia.conf" should be "doins ${FILESDIR}/pcmcia.conf"
im guessing.
