I am going to submit pci info about hardware supported by video4linux project
(http://bytesex.org/v4l), which are handled by saa7134 and cx8800 drivers. Can
the following lines be added to pcitable file:
0x1131 0x7130 saa7134
0x1131 0x7133 saa7134
0x1131 0x7134 saa7134
0x1131 0x7135 saa7134
0x14f1 0x8800 cx88xx
0x14f1 0x8801 cx88xx
0x14f1 0x8811 cx88xx
0x14f1 0x8802 cx88xx
Please get these IDs in the upstream drivers.
these look to be present in the 2.6.12rc kernel, so they'll turn up in FC3 when
we release a 2.6.12 based update. There's a testing version of the
work-in-progress .12 FC3 packages at http://people.redhat.com/davej/kernels/test
Yes, corresponding PCI ID's is already included in kernel/pci id's linux data.
The only problem I would like to solve is to allow kudzu find new hardware and
add needed modprobe lines.
Sorry, of course lines should be
0x1131 0x7130 "saa7134"
0x1131 0x7133 "saa7134"
0x1131 0x7134 "saa7134"
0x1131 0x7135 "saa7134"
0x14f1 0x8800 "cx88xx"
0x14f1 0x8801 "cx88xx"
0x14f1 0x8811 "cx88xx"
0x14f1 0x8802 "cx88xx"
btw, don't you know how other distributions handle that case, is there some
other hardware scanners that need such kind of change?
Without the updated modules from the newer kernel, modprobe'ing the module will
have no effect, so kudzu having no knowledge of them is a problem that'll be
solved when the update goes out.
As long as the modules have the IDs upstream, the right thing should happen with
kudzu. Closing as 'rawhide'; should be fixed in FC4-ish and later for FC3 if we
do a kernel update.
