That won't happen until the developers get all the kinks worked out of a
new 5.x.x kernel and RTAI. But they are busting ass trying to make it
work for buster as I write this... Wheezy's semi-original 3.4.9 kernel
was the last time it was stable. Even that claimed it was PAE capable,
but never was, so its best with only 2 gigs of dram in a machine if you
want to keep it out of swap.
And thats the sort of machine this camera has to work in.
