Hmmm, 2.6.35.4 doesn't see my e-sata drive. Kernel 2.6.32.7 works. (WD-MyBook Studio 2 TB)

Try 2.6.34.6.  They did a ata code reorg in 2.6.35 that seems to be causing some trouble, particularly with sata port multipliers.

Gwendal Grignou found the bug for the port multiplier bug.  The patch is on its way.

Any chance CONFIG_PRINTK_TIME can be enabled.   It gives timestamps in dmesg output.   I don't think it has any other overhead, and makes debugging problems rather simpler :-)

Yeah, I'll put that in the next version.

Are you sure that you're not needing X drivers rather than kernel drivers?  I did look into this a bit and it seemed that touchscreen is handled by X drivers.  If you have a particular kernel driver in mind let me know.

X drivers.  If you have a particular kernel driver in mind let me know.

The thing is that I am not using X, but qws.  I think the kernel driver is USB Tochscreen (CONFIG_TOUCHSCREEN_USB_COMPOSITE).

the output from lsusb is now :
Bus 001 Device 022: ID 17e9:401a Newnham Research
Bus 001 Device 021: ID 1ac7:0001
Bus 001 Device 020: ID 0ac8:c339 Z-Star Microelectronics Corp.
Bus 001 Device 019: ID 058f:6254 Alcor Micro Corp. USB Hub
Bus 001 Device 018: ID 050d:0234 Belkin Components F5U234 USB 2.0 4-Port Hub
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

The second one is the usb touch device.

same place as usual.  just delete the sheeva-2.6.35.4* files previously downloaded by README-2.6.35.4 and rerun README-2.6.35.4.  It will get the new version.

Are you absolutely shure? The date of the files hasn't changed and at least the size of the modules is exactely the same. You see I don't use the readme file because I boot my Sheevas from a dockstar running ftfp and nfs (as rootfs).
