On RH9, kernel 2.4.21 patch with Con Kollivas patch
( http://members.optusnet.com.au/ckolivas/kernel ) ,
the driver does compile fine , it loads fine but can
not be used - xawtv gives an error - libGL error:
InitDriver failed.

Interesting info : on laptop same kernel 2.4.21 with
acpi patch, using Debian, does work fine....

Any hints please ?

Thank you,
Florentin.
