has one for older kernel, but that rpm cannot be installed.
Is there any hope this module will return, and be maintained?
Or standard be inside the kernel modules list, or whatever?
It is in the 11.1
kernel, so you could just use the 11.1 kernel
The reason for it missing in the 2.6.29 build is:
Why is it set? Jeff? Greg? Don't we want the
staging drivers too?
It was probably just left on from the SLE split. I'm committing a change
now that enables those drivers. They'll automatically end up in the
-extra package unless we want to change that.
I don't think we need split kernel packages on opensuse anyway.
I must say that the kernel i am using since a few days now, performs
realy fast on this machine.
This xtra pkg, will i be able to use it with this one?
Have a nice day ;)
