so i had to reinstall arch on my laptop, i used the install guide, and had it setup pretty much as it was before. when it started to boot, everything was going fine till it got to the daemons, and it tried to load pcmcia, than i got the error
/etc/rc.c/pcmcia : no such directory
and as i looked into it, there is no pcmcia directorys anyware on my system, no config files, nothing, the right modules load, but nothing else
i tried to install it 3 times this afternoon, am i just missing a step?
it's rc.d not rc.c (typo?)
The file /etc/rc.d/pcmcia exist on my system. Do :
pacman -S pcmcia-cs
to get the pcmcia utils.
ya, thats a typo,
the problem is, my nic is a pcmcia,
i cant upgrade anything thats not on cd,
i am using gnoppix right now, so i know that the card, and sockets work
i have tried it 3 more tiimes, with the same result.
this is just weird
why not use knoppix to download the package from a mirror then transfer it onto arch? Put it into your /var/cache/pacman/pkg folder and then do pacman -S pcmcia-cs. or if that doesn't work pacman -A /var/cache/pacman/pkg/package.pkg.tar.gz.
i just found the cd i used with my last install with the pcmcia-cs on it, everythings back and running,
