Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2002-07-02 16:20:32 UTC
The driver SAYS 5.31 but it has all the 5.36 bugfixes, and fixes for the buffer
and stack overflows. However there was one typo that's fixed in recent kernels;
what kernel do you use exactly ?

Comment 2 Daryll 2002-07-02 16:27:27 UTC
I actually tried a couple under 7.2. We're now running 2.4.18-5 (the latest)
under 7.3. I assume that has all the fixes. That would be good. Thanks.

Maybe you should update the driver number to avoid the confusion?

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2003-02-19 16:40:46 UTC
This should be better in more recent kernels.
