ide-cs woes

More tablet news: it appears that connecting the PCMCIA DVD drive triggers a nice little bug in the Linux kernel (in the ide-cs module, apparently) that causes all processes attempting to access the device — including the PCMCIA utilities themselves — to hang indefinitely and unkillably. Thus rendering the drive utterly unusable under Linux.

As Carl from ATHF would say, “Oh, good.”
