I have been wondering which piece of the new pcmcia stack was in charge
of doing what "cardmgr -o" did in 2.4, and there it is! I did not know
it required a default config file tough.
Is this something related to BIOS information missing? Or a particular
setup in this socket?
Thank you very, very much.
A happy ending for my sunday.
