Re: Conflict between userspace driver and kernel driver module

Ok, I feel stupid because all the symptoms I have described about
libfreenect were my mistake (I went too fast...). See later

This is what I am already doing: packaging the latest version (2 weeks
old). I recently integrated the maintainer group of libfreenect and I am
preparing the version 0.1.2.

You are right, and we intend to be closer in future (I have added a
watch file for this). Now the problems I faced were my fault : I was
packaging the version 0.1.2, but by mistake I tested the previous debian
version (the one without the detach): I was so confident about the
problem that I did not investigated more carefully. But this has taught
me a lesson: verify twice (or even three times) before opening my mouth
:-( (and before writing a debconf script for no reason)

Actually I wanted to know whether some similar situation had been
encountered previously and how they were solved before discussing about
it on openkinect. So now, there is nothing to discussed, everything is
solved. However if somebody has faced a similar problem, I am still
interested in knowing how it has been solved.

The version 0.1.2 is almost ready. It should land in Debian in few days :-).
