so? If there is already a patch available, then the linux-pci people
have to know something about it. I'm sure they can help you out there.
Just describe your problem in detail (a extensive checklist is located in
your kernel's root directory "REPORTING-BUGS" file) as a reply to this mail.
I simply can't give you any support for problems I know nothing about.
So please, concentrate your questions around this particular device and
interaction with firmware and driver. But as I said in my previous mail,
you don't need a special kernel driver. *carlu* really is a userspace-only
application that can communicate with the device (through the use of
libusb) at the "lowest level". It may be even possible to port the code to
other platforms (FreeBSD & Mac OS X, Windows) with little effort.
I made significant changes in the way we handle PCI bridge windows,
and I'm eager to fix any issues in that area. But "very quick error
on boot" doesn't give me any information to work with.
Please attach your complete dmesg output, serial console log (with
"ignore_loglevel"), digital photo of the error, or other specific
Pong! Unfortunately, I haven't heard any news about this pci bridge issue
from "David H. Lynch Jr.". But as you say: "Time for patching 2.6.34-rcX
regressions is running out". Therefore, David: please hurry up and post
what you are seeing. Most of oopses, can be easily captured with a serial
console (a setup is described in Documentation/serial-console.txt )
