Description Ed Swierk 1999-04-29 04:11:38 EDT
Ejecting a PCMCIA network card, either physically or via
"cardctl eject", causes the PCMCIA driver to hang.  Further
insert/eject events are ignored.

As a workaround, adding the following lines to
/etc/pcmcia/network somehow avoids the problem:

  exec 1>/dev/console
  exec 2>/dev/console

(Actually, I didn't discover this workaround--someone on the
Linux PCMCIA discussion list did.  For more info, see

This appears to be machine-specific.  Can you let us know which
pcmcia driver chip you have on your laptop, and which pcmcia network
card you have?
