Bug#345592: linux-image-2.6.14-2-k7: pwc module doesn't work

Hi Sven,

I'm not sure what is the pwc external driver package - I haven't installed anything apart from the kernel in case of 2.6.14-2 and additional modules for 2.6.14-1. Can you please tell me where do I find old-pwc module that I can use meanwhile?
Also, do we need to reassign this bug to someone else then?

It works with linux-image-2.6.14-1-k7, where it is supplied as a
separate package.

It works also, but the uncompression has been moved out of the kernel driver,
into an hypothetical userland. That said, userland apps have not adapted to
it, nor has any userland way of uncompressing it surfaced in any way.

That said, the third-party old-pwc module is still there, and needs just to be
rebuilt against the 2.6.14-2 abi, and it will do the proper diversion or
whatever of the pwc module and work well, so i believe what you see is a pwc
external driver package bug which has not yet been rebuild against the new
