Looks like the driver has been enabled in Debian since v2.6.39
(bug#624505). But the config files weren't adjusted to enable
CONFIG_STAGING_MEDIA after v3.2-rc2~15^2~133 (staging: Move media
drivers to staging/media, 2011-11-01) yet so no joy.

Why?

Thanks for the heads up,
Jonathan

Hi, Jonathan.

Version 3.2~rc7-1~experimental.1, as you already pointed out.

Oh, great.

Being a staging driver, I just thought that it would be a good idea
for the distribution to have more detailed dmesg logs to ask the users
to send in case of problems (and, when pertinent, to send upstream),
but if you don't see that need, just drop that part of my request.

(The driver does not work 100% anyway, but almost, and I am trying to
debug why).
