Forum: PCMCIA ATA/IDE Device Issues
Re: Question IRQ changes each time card it ejected (Tony Sciortino)
Date: 2000, Apr 10
From: David Hinds <>

Do not hot eject IDE devices without unmounting the filesystems!  That
is bad, bad, bad!  The least of your problems is that the resources
used by the card are not freed correctly by the IDE driver; you are
also risking a kernel panic and/or data corruption every time you do

You should always do a "cardctl eject" prior to ejecting an IDE

Message Administration

This form allows you to delete, move, or copy one or more messages. You can move messages by copying and deleting the original. The action will be applied to the messages you select above and all replies to those selected messages.

If you want to copy or move messages, specify the HyperNews path of a destination forum or message that all messages will be copied or moved to. The destination must already exist, so maybe create it first.

Path of Destination (a Forum or Message): (e.g. "test")

Notify Subscribers at destination

If you want to delete messages (the default), specify that here. If you want to move messages, you need to delete the original messages; placeholders will be left pointing to where they were moved.

Delete Messages

Caution: After deleteing messages (the default), if you have not copied them (i.e. no destination above), then the selected messages are not be recoverable.
