The future is here: pcmciautils

The needed changes to the in-kernel PCMCIA subsystem for allowing hotplug to handle 16bit PCMCIA cards was merged into linux-2.6.13-rc1 – and I have just added sys-apps/pcmciautils to portage, finally closing bug #84234. A big thank you to Dominik Brodowski for the initial ebuild – and for the package itself.

If you want to try out this cool new feature, you’ll have to unmerge pcmcia-cs and emerge pcmciautils – and if your card needs a CIS override you should set USE=”cis”.

Please report all bugs to Gentoo Bugzilla.
