[Bug 86577] Re: out-of-the-box initrd images do not include 32bit pccard support

Hi Andreas,

still an issue for me with Hardy (uname -a -> Linux pollux
2.6.24-21-generic #1 SMP Sat Jul 26 15:39:24 UTC 2008 i686 GNU/Linux).
OTOH this is obviously not an issue for anyone else than me.

I have to admit that I don't know how initramfs-tools decides which
modules to include (except that it considers the "modules" file in /etc
/initramfs-tools). The strange thing is that it includes pcmcia.ko and
pcmcia_core.ko but not yenta_socket.ko and dependants.

This is not a huge issue, but it makes it impossible to run ubuntu from
any disk connected via cardbus adapters (i.e. firewire or usb2 cards)
without building an initrd-image with yenta_socket.ko on another
computer (or built-in disk).

Kind regards, Bernhard.
