Default Ubuntu and usbfs - can't find IR emitter

Hi,

The documentation for installing the current Linux driver notes that it needs kernel support for usbfs. Ubuntu dropped this from their kernel around 9.04 -- and it certainly isn't in 10.10, which I am trying to run. As a result I get the following in my Xorg.0.log:


(II) Dec 07 21:42:23 NVIDIA(0): USB IR emitter - Copyright (c) 2008 NVIDIA Corporation NVIDIA
(II) Dec 07 21:42:23 NVIDIA(0): stereo controller
(WW) Dec 07 21:42:23 NVIDIA(0): Failed to re-enumerate USB IR emitter device during
(WW) Dec 07 21:42:23 NVIDIA(0): initialization.
(WW) Dec 07 21:42:23 NVIDIA(0): USB IR emitter dongle initialization failed. Disabling stereo

Is there a known workaround for this, or do I have to switch to a Linux distribution that supports the usfbs? If so, which one?

Thanks,
Lynn Ten Eyck

Thank you -- because I rechecked and I am running 10.04 64-bit. The driver I was trying to use was NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-260.19.21.run. Is this the same as, or different from, devdriver_3.2_linux_32_260.19.21.run? If they are the same, I have to figure out what I did wrong on the installation.

Thanks,
