together with the Gold listed above that brings to number of dvico "5"
cards up to three. The Gold, the Lite, and the RT Lite. the kernel
modules built from the tarball you posted did nothing in my machine
with the "Lite" card in it. no panics, not device attaching, nothing
in dmesg, nada. If JMG is out there, now would be a good time to step
up and explain whether by supported he means, "it worked on my machine
this one time" or "it should work everywhere and I stand by it"
And what is good, Phaedrus,
And what is not good—
Need we ask anyone to tell us these things?
