    Well, I've not followed evolutions in this area for a long time. Here's
    what I get on my notebook :

    willy@wtap:~$ uname -r
    2.6.20-wt3-wtap
    willy@wtap:~$ ps auxw|grep card
    root 1216 0.0 0.0 0 0 ? S< Apr28 0:00 [pccardd]
    root 1221 0.0 0.0 0 0 ? S< Apr28 0:00 [pccardd]
    root 1244 0.0 0.0 0 0 ? S< Apr28 0:00 [pccardd]
    root 1251 0.0 0.0 0 0 ? Ss Apr28 0:00 /sbin/cardmgr

    What's the new recommended way of using PCMCIA cards when cardmgr is gone ?

    Thanks,
    Willy
