Hi pulsengine,

I'm not really too sure what you mean by "won't work and won't charge". Please provide a one sentence summary of what you observe going wrong; i.e. the actual behavior that made you conclude the driver was not functioning correctly. What did you expect that did not happen? What happened that you did not expect?

I asked exactly for the output of 'lsmod|egrep rt'. To produce output in the form of a file you can attach to a post here, do[code3ajtmv66]lsmod|egrep rt >/tmp/lsmod.out[/code3ajtmv66]then attach a copy of /tmp/lsmod.out to a post here. If it turns out to be only a few lines, then paste it into the posting. We'll asymptotically approach mutual comprehension.
