I found the patch location, it was off by about -30 lines after the
other patches, and applied them. It builds now, but still doesn't
work, very slow screen updates and no video in tvtime. It works
properly with 2.6.11,, and As I didn't have the
card until 2.6.11 was out, I should back up to the last rc4-RT, and
see if this card will work with that. At least that will narrow the
guilty patchset down a wee bit. I'll try that later today if the
honeydo's don't get in the way.

I noted last night too, that while my scanner worked, it was gawdawful
slow at retrieving the data over the usb when running at a measly
300dpi, 3 to 4 minutes for an 8.5x11, 23 MB of data (according to
xsane) scan. IIRC Its been only 45-50 seconds in past times. So
that may indicate a usb slowdown too, in the read path only. The usb
printer in 1440x1440 color was about its usual speed, needing a
surveyer to measure page ejection progress. :)

That printer does very very nice indeed color work, but in those
modes, theres no way to convince the frogs that an Epson C82 is
faster than watching paint dry. 10 to 20 minutes a page depending on

OTOH, my output, after tweaking a few things, was a hell of a lot more
brilliant than the page I scanned in! (Plus the award recipients
name is now spelled correctly, the reason for that little 3 hour
exersize, ain't the gimp wunnerful?)

I don't believe I'm seeing any evidence of that here. OTOH, I don't
run sensors very often when gkrellm is running. Or are there other
processes accessing through that bus that wouldn't play well?
