User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20021130

Description of problem:
RedHat up2date updated kernel from 2.4.18-27.7.x to 2.4.20-13.7.
While booting comes info:
module directory /lib/modules/2.3.20-13.7/pcmcia not found

This has never happened since kernel 2.4.9.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel 2.4.20-13.7

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Additional info:
Comment 1 Milan Kerslager 2003-05-26 06:08:44 EDT
Make a symbolic link:

cd /lib/modules/2.4.20-13.7
ln -s kernel/drivers/pcmcia

This bug is more about broken /etc/init.d/pcmcia script. The package
kernel-pcmcia-cs could be fixed to not expect non-existent directory with
modules which trying to load.
