Could it be that your module quit with a kernel update and needs
recompiling? You are aware of the kernel version screwup with FC6? Fix
that, and try a tarball for your card and compile it yourself for your
current kernel. Might be worth a shot. I install things like that for
java and my webcam in /opt FC doesn't do anything with /opt so it's safe
there. Then when you update your kernel, you can go there and
re-compile. Then you don't have to wait for someone to remember to
upgrade your module rpm for the next kernel... which can take days. Ric
