Hi James,

I replaced the kernel, and after that:

1) The gst-launch test worked properly, in both cases, so RGB now is supported
2) Record Activity, still working fine
3) flashplugin, although it works better still is showing an ugly
image, as you can see


Any thoughts ?

On the other hands, we have XO4 1G models with Fedora 18, with the
same problem, is there kernel fixed for these ?
