However, if you enable that option you lose atleast the following:
<br><br>--- Supported SAA7146 based PCI Adapters<br><M> AV7110 cards<br> [ ] Compile AV7110 firmware into the driver<br> [*] AV7110 OSD support<br><br>Not only do those items vanish from the menuconfig but the required ttpci_eeprom & dvb_ttpci don't get compiled either. Anyone with a nexus-s will not be able to load the drivers because these required elements are missing. If you uncheck the option, the AV7110 stuff does not come back so you're still out-of-luck.
<br><br>Additionally, many people seem to be confused by the Help text given for the "[ ] Enable drivers not supported by this kernel" option. It's recommend that the text be rewritten more clearly so the average non-developer user can better understand the purpose of that option.
<br><br>With the 2.6.17 kernel just being release, a lot of users are updating both their kernel & drivers now, and I've noticed this causing confusion/problems.<br><br>Thanks fellas.<br>
