We don't actually use the drivers from the pcmcia-cs package,
just the cardmgr program.

Which card are you missing a driver for ?

I am using a Linksys Etherfast PCMPC100 v3 which does not work. Here is the
relevant snippet from /var/log/messages:

Jul  7 10:04:13 bombay cardmgr[447]: initializing socket 0
Jul  7 10:04:13 bombay cardmgr[447]: socket 0: NE2000 Compatible Ethernet
Jul  7 10:04:13 bombay kernel: cs: memory probe 0xa0000000-0xa0ffffff: clean.
Jul  7 10:04:13 bombay cardmgr[447]: executing: 'modprobe 8390'
Jul  7 10:04:14 bombay cardmgr[447]: executing: 'modprobe pcnet_cs'
Jul  7 10:04:14 bombay kernel: eth0: pcnet_reset_8390() did not complete.
Jul  7 10:04:14 bombay kernel: pcnet_cs: sorry, the AX88190 chipset is not
Jul  7 10:04:14 bombay kernel: pcnet_cs: unable to read hardware net address for
io base 0x300
Jul  7 10:04:14 bombay cardmgr[447]: get dev info on socket 0 failed: No such device

When I looked at the release notes for pcmcia-cs at the URL above, I saw that
the AX88190  is now supported (axnet_cs).

I would also be very interested in an rpm for a more recent version of kernel-
pcmcia-cs.  I am having problems with the PCMCIA card controller driver 
crashing on my Toshiba Satellite 2060CDS (which has a ToPIC97 card).  I notice 
that one of the more recent versions of the PCMCIA card services included bug 
fixes for the ToPIC cards.  I will submit my own bug report within a week or so.

This should be better these days.
