Description of problem:
kudzu does not enable PCMCIA support if a PCMCIA CardBus bridge is added to an
existing system. Simply had to edit /etc/sysconfig/pcmcia (PCMCIA=yes, select a
PCIC) and everything works fine.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Red Hat Linux 8.0.
2. Install a CardBus bridge (mine is Texas Instruments PCI1410)
3. Reboot and find that the PCMCIA subsystem is never automatically enabled.

Additional info:

It's probably not so common that a system acquires a PCMCIA bus later on in its
life. Sounds easy enough to add once you consider the possibility, but what do I

This is fixed in the Fedora Core development tree with pcmciautils and udev, as
pcmcia-cs is no longer needed.
