Hello Bernie and all:

I don't know if the kernel driver is or not present, but a couple of weeks
ago I tryed the soas (strawberry and blueberry) on a classmate and all
hardware components were fully functional with both, although i didn't get a
chance to tackle mesh network.

I had a problem first because I tryed to use the record activity in the
blueberry soas, but than someone corrected me that the record activty was
not yet compatible with sugar 0.86, besides that.. no issues.. everything

This kernel modole that you ask for, is it a requirement for something
specific that you trying or just a wishlist?? :)

cheers.. R
