None Clean resource allocation is hard

Re: More Working now, but one last question (Jason M. Sullivan)

From: David Hinds <>

The drivers try to avoid clashes with known devices, but the Linux
kernel currently does not make this particularly easy.  If you have a
fairly recent PCMCIA package and compile it with PnP BIOS support
enabled, it will generally do a better job of this, because the BIOS
may know more about the resources used by your devices than the Linux
kernel.  However, PnP BIOS calls cause problems on some systems, so I
don't enable this by default.

You should exclude the MIDI ports if the PCMCIA drivers are trying to
reuse them.

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.
