I just tested gphoto2 with Steven's zimage.p1 kernel. It works well, but
because Steven answered 'N' to usbdevfs support, you will need to
use a different usbcore module. Here is the procedure:
-Download one of Steven's 2.2.26 zimage kernels. Also download one
of usb-uhci, usb-ohci, or uhci.o. (Use lsmod in SW9 to figure out which
one to get.) Get the usbcore.o module from here:
-Boot BL with the zimage kernel
-insmod usbcore and the *hci module
-mount -t usbdevfs /dev/usb/ /dev/usb/
-run gphoto2 as usual
I did 'gphoto2 --auto-detect' and saw a generic PTP camera listed.
I then did 'gphoto2 -P' and it transferred the pictures to the current
I hope this helps.
