Fedora Test Update Notification
FEDORA-2004-073
2004-02-11
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Name : kernel-pcmcia-cs
Version : 3.1.31
Release : 16
Summary : The daemon for using PCMCIA adapters.
Description :
Many laptop machines (and some non-laptops) support PCMCIA cards for expansion. Also known as "credit card adapters," PCMCIA cards are small cards for everything from SCSI support to modems. PCMCIA cards are hot swappable (i.e., they can be exchanged without rebooting the system) and quite convenient to use. The kernel-pcmcia-cs package contains a set of loadable kernel modules that implement an applications program interface, a set of client drivers for specific cards and a card manager daemon that can respond to card insertion and removal events by loading and unloading drivers on demand. The daemon also supports hot swapping, so that the cards can be safely inserted and ejected at any time.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

This update is mainly a rebuild for x86_64 support (it's available for Fedora Core 1 test 1 for x86_64 as well.). Other changes include a change to the initscript to load modules without the .o suffix.

Barring any negative feedback (via either bugzilla, or response to this message), this will be pushed live on Monday, February 16.
