Description Hans de Goede 2000-07-22 09:57:38 UTC
With both my laptops kernel-pcmcia-cs was not installed during an
workstation install.

This is very anoying since both don't have cdrom's so I need pcmcia to
install pcmcia, chicken and egg problem.

Solved by using the rescue disk but this is far from userfriendly.

I know there was some discussion about not installing pcmcia for normal
workstations that is fine by me, but not having it on laptops is a pain.

Did you select the 'laptop support' component?

Comment 2 Hans de Goede 2000-07-24 20:24:09 UTC
I saw, and just installed beta4 and still see no such component when doing a
laptop install, or does a laptop install require one to use custom, that would
be not so nice.

ehm "laptop install" = "worktstation install", duh

This will be fixed in beta5.
