1 Hi,
3 Starting from linux-2.6.13-rc1 the PCMCIA subsystem has been patched to
4 exports certain internals to sysfs, which allows using hotplug for
5 handling insertion/ejection of 16bit PCMCIA cards.
7 For this to work, a new package called pcmciautils [1] will need to be
8 added to portage. Therefore, a new virtual/pcmcia (which will default to
9 sys-apps/pcmcia-cs in base/virtuals for now) will be added as well.
11 I have had sys-apps/pcmciautils in my portage overlay [2] for quite a
12 while now, just waiting for the needed functionality to be merged into
13 Linus' tree.
15 The linux-mod eclass will be changed to depend on virtual/pcmcia for
16 pcmcia support. Future ebuilds that just need a PCMCIA card manager
17 should depend on virtual/pcmcia as well.
19 If anybody has any objections and/or questions to this new virtual,
20 please drop me an e-mail.
22 Sincerely,
23 Brix
