Description Adam Spiers 2001-11-26 18:49:36 UTC
Presumably someone has or had a good reason for writing
this line in the .spec file in kernel-pcmcia-cs-3.1.27-10.src.rpm:

  install -m755 %{SOURCE3} $RPM_BUILD_ROOT/etc/pcmcia/config
but the Source3 in question is broken -- it's missing a `bind'
directive for the very last card in the file (Xircom RBM56G Modem).
This causes a very misleading error to appear in /var/log/messages
when the pcmcia services start up:

cardmgr[7337]: config error, file './config.opts' line 8: no function bindings
There is a large number of differences between the Source3 config
(revision 1.154) and the official pcmcia config (revision 1.170).
ICBW, but isn't it very risky having such a mismatch in age between
a config file and the code which uses it?  I notice that this 
'copy over' approach is also being taken for /etc/pcmcia/isdn and
