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.
