[Bug 489353] Re: em28xx-new should be added to repository


Amitai Bar, this bug was reported a while ago and there hasn't been any
activity in it recently. We were wondering if this is still an issue? If
so, could you please test for this with the latest development release
of Ubuntu? ISO images are available from http://cdimage.ubuntu.com
/daily-live/current/ .

If it remains an issue, could you please run the following command in
the development release from a Terminal
(Applications->Accessories->Terminal), as it will automatically gather
and attach updated debug information to this report:

apport-collect -p linux <replace-with-bug-number>

Also, could you please test the latest upstream kernel available (not the daily folder) following https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KernelMainlineBuilds ? It will allow additional upstream developers to examine the issue. Once you've tested the upstream kernel, please comment on which kernel version specifically you tested. If this bug is fixed in the mainline kernel, please add the following tags:

  em28xx-new should be added to repository

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  the em28xx-new should be added to the repository or at least be replaced.
  the new em28xx is an open source driver (otherwise i wouldn't be able to compile it on my machine) and I think that the driver should come out of the box.
  The current driver is an old one that does not support DVB. it supports analog only.
