Description Michal Jaegermann 2002-10-01 00:38:19 UTC
Description of Problem:

Patched sources for the current updated kernel for 7.3 release have the
following in drivers/pcmcia/Config.in

   if [ "$CONFIG_8xx" ="y" ]

instead of
   if [ "$CONFIG_8xx" = "y" ]

This is causing "unary operator expected" errors from Configure script
and, in circumstances which are not clear to me because this happens only
sometimes, may kick you out of a compilation due to make errors.

In 2.4.18-14 for 8.0 the error does not occur.  If due to a deliberate
action and not by an accident then great; but 7.3 still has it.
