News PCMCIA driver release 2.9.3 

Forum: Announcements of PCMCIA driver updates
Date: 1997, Apr 14
From: David Hinds dhinds

This release fixes a handful of moderately important bugs in the 2.9.2 drivers. You'll find it at ftp://hyper.stanford.edu/pub/pcmcia.

Changes from previous releases are at ftp://hyper.stanford.edu/pub/pcmcia/CHANGES.

This release once again reorganizes a lot of the probe code in the i82365 driver, to hopefully do a better job of handling multiple controllers, particularly multiple PCI controllers. I hope that CardBus support (for 16-bit cards) will eventually become more stable, but there are still a few problems.

The transceiver autodetection code in the 3c589 driver should work again. The old code broke on recent 2.1.X kernels, so it was disabled in 2.9.2. The new code seems to work well on my machine running a 2.1.28 kernel.

For the next release, I'll include some helper scripts for setting up "initrd" PCMCIA boot images.
