       cardmgr - PCMCIA device manager

       cardmgr	[-V] [-q] [-d] [-o] [-f] [-v] [-c configpath] [-m modpath] [-p pidfile] [-s stab-

       Cardmgr monitors PCMCIA sockets for card insertion and removal events.	When  a  card  is
       inserted,  cardmgr  looks  up  the  card in a database of known cards.  If the card can be
       identified, appropriate device drivers will be loaded and bound to the card.  When a  card
       is  ejected, that card's drivers will be shut down and unloaded if possible.  Based on the
       contents of the PCMCIA card configuration database, cardmgr  may  also  execute	arbitrary
       commands when appropriate cards are either inserted or removed.

       All  insertion  and removal events, device driver loads and unloads, and startup and shut-
       down commands are reported in the system log file.   Warnings  and  errors  will  also  be
       logged.	 Current card and device information for each socket is recorded in /var/lib/pcm-

       Normally, when a card is identified, cardmgr will send a beep to the console.  A  beep  is
       also generated when a card is successfully configured.  A beep of lower pitch is generated
       if either of these steps fails.	Ejecting a card produces a single beep.

       When cardmgr receives a SIGHUP signal, it will reload its configuration file.  When  card-
       mgr  receives  a  SIGTERM signal, it will shut down all sockets that are not busy and then
       exit, but drivers for busy sockets will stay loaded.

       If the PCMCIA_OPTS environment variable is set, its contents will be parsed after the main
       card configuration file is read.

       At  startup, cardmgr requires that /tmp reside on a filesystem that permits special device
       files (i.e., a real linux filesystem, that is not mounted "nodev").

       -V     Show version information and exit.

       -q     Quiet mode: don't beep when cards are inserted.

       -v     Verbose mode: generates more informational messages during normal operation.   Con-
	      figuration scripts are executed with VERBOSE=y.

       -d     Follow  module  dependencies when loading driver modules, by defaulting to use mod-
	      probe instead of insmod.	Normally, cardmgr will try using modprobe only	after  an
	      unsuccessful attempt with insmod.

       -f     Foreground:  do not fork and run as a daemon until after configuring any cards that
	      are already present.

       -o     One pass: configure cards that are present, then exit.  This flag also forces card-
	      mgr to run in the foreground.

       -c configpath
	      Look  for  the  card  configuration  database and card configuration scripts in the
	      specified directory, instead of /etc/pcmcia.

       -m modpath
	      Look for loadable kernel modules in the specified directory, instead  of	/lib/mod-
	      ules/`uname -r`.

       -p pidfile
	      Write   the  PID	of  the  cardmgr  process  to  the  specified  file,  instead  of

       -s stabfile
	      Write current socket information to the specified file,  instead	of  /var/lib/pcm-

       /etc/pcmcia/config	 Card configuration database
       /etc/pcmcia/config.opts	 Local resource settings for PCMCIA devices
       /var/run/cardmgr.pid	 PID of active cardmgr process
       /var/lib/pcmcia/stab	 Current card and device information for each socket.
