Let's try to get this folded in as a replacement deb.
Guys, please. LET'S NOT KEEP STUFF LIKE THIS TO OURSELVES.
They have been in general circulation for about 8 weeks or more Thom...Niz23 and others have been using them. We have built them so that we can support multiple Kernels with a single deb which helps us to span both our Dianemo customer systems which are based on the LinuxMCE-0710 Kernel, 0810-alpha Kernels and 0904 Kernels. I believe Radu has discussed putting these into the svn...but they will of course completely replace the 'standard' kubuntu v4l debs...
dkms is used by the nVidia installer and we also have an alsa deb that uses dkms. However there are some 'gotchas' and alsa shows these clearly as on lower end processors recompiling alsa on the target machine is a grueling and slow process.
