One of the changes between the 08:50, 12 February 2013 version and the 23:37, 13 June 2013 is to remove

find -type d -exec chmod 755 \{\} \;

find -type f -exec chmod 644 \{\} \;

find -name '*.sh' -exec chmod 755 \{\} \;

find -name '*.pl' -exec chmod 755 \{\} \;

Without this step, the build fails on my debian wheezy machine.

We should make this step as easy as possible for anyone looking for info about getting this card working and include the text to minimise the pre-requisite knowledge, IMHO.

I also fixed the text of this step because it wasn't working for me and I'd like to be able to return the page and copy and paste this text into my terminal (after a sanity check of course). ;-)

Open Source Drivers

I (Timmydog) intend to add more info to the open source section of this page, such as dmesg output, modules loaded, etc.

Does anyone have an opinion as to whether it should be moved to a new page, e.g. "TBS6280" with info about the card, "TBS6280 (proprietary drivers)" and "TBS6280 (GPL drivers)"?

IMHO the current page is starting to get a bit unwieldy.
