Cardinfo control panel is a replacement for the ugly XForms-based Cardinfo panel from David Hinds pcmcia-cs package.
Because XForms is "not free", Debian uses this utility in their pcmcia-cs package. Way to go, Debian! (This still doesn't mean I like or use Debian. They are just cool to include my code.)
eplace cardinfo.c in pcmcia-3.x.x/cardmgr with cardinfo.c from this package.
Copy panel.xpm to the same directory as cardinfo.c
run Configure in pcmcia if you havent already
do make cardinfo in cardmgr directory.
Install cardinfo suid root or run it as root.
