Description Francois-Xavier 'FiX' KOWALSKI 2004-09-12 10:25:25 UTC
Description of problem:

my HP ob900 laptop works with the PCMCIA socket driver yenta_socket. 
this driver was successfully probed by anaconda & is declared as such
in /etc/sysconfig/pcmcia as $PCIC.

however, at boot time, /etc/init.d/pcmcia does not even attempt to
load it.  as a result, no PCMCIA-based service can work.  this
includes -- for me -- my xircom network driver.

work-around is after boot, run the following:

1. modprobe yenta_socket
2. service pcmcia restart
3. ifup eth0 (all the network dependent services are restart by my
customized dhclient-hooks script)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. reboot the box
Actual results:

yenta_socket is not loaded so I have access to my PCMCIA cards

Expected results:

I should have access to my PCMCIA cards

I have tried to make this patch as clean as possible: it does not only apply to
my personnal case...
