Just in the process of upgrading FC4 with the 2.6.13 kernel to work
with the latest CVS tree, so I'll let you (all) know how it goes.<br>

<br><br>Changes that I made to get it 'work':<br>- Change the name to stv0297 (files and api functions)<br>- Added 'u8 invert:1' and 'u8* inittab' to struct stv0297_config in<br>header file.<br>- In function stv0297_readregsI changed the i2c_transfer to be done in
<br>to parts.<br><br>I'm not familiar with the kernel drivers nor stv0297 so I have no idea<br>for further modifications. I hope that some developer could try to solve<br>this problem in some way or give advice for me to debug it.
