Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 19892
RH7 does not include pcmcia-cs for SMP

The subject says it all. There is no pcmcia-cs package for SMP kernels.
There isn't one for 2.4 kernels either (on the CD or on RawHide).
The reason for this is that the pcmcia package doesn't work for just about every
SMP machines that is. The 2.4 kernel might be able to support PCMCIA on SMP
but that is still under investigation.
I've had to compile my own for SMP and every driver I've tried has worked for
SMP. As I understand it few drivers don't work.
It's been more than 6 months now. I've still been compiling my own pcmcia-cs
packages. What's the chance of getting an pcmcia-cs-smp package in RedHat?
There's no need for a pcmcia-cs SMP package; the current 2.4 kernel packages
contain all the drivers, and the SMP kernel also includes all the drivers.
