Description Marc MERLIN 1998-11-28 04:53:03 EST
Just for info, with certain PCMCIA controllers the install
will fail to detect the PCMCIA capabilities of the laptop
if the machine was warm booted after using windows.
This is a known problem with the pcmcia package that seems
to have been worked around in pcmcia-3.0.6.

In the meantime, some note somewhere saying that if pcmcia
isn't detected, the user should try to power off the laptop
and boot it directly under linux would help. I know several
people who have been bitten by this, and lost many hours on
that problem, myself included.

Added missing summary

We will need to get a laptop that has windows on it to be able to
confirm this problem.

It is likely that you won't be able to reproduce the bug because it
only happens with a one (maybe more?) PCMCIA controller.
The laptop I had a problem with had the following controller:
O2Micro OZ6836 CardBus at mem 0x68000000, 2 sockets
