Option makes available HSO drivers in DEB and RPM format
Option has always keenly supported the Linux integrator but now they have made their driver package available for normal Linux user too.
The driver is now available in deb, rpm and tgz format and incorporate dkms. Using dkms means that the driver will be automatically recompiled for you if your distribution updates the kernel in any way. This is particularly important for users whose kernels already ship a version of the HSO driver.
This release supports all the new devices from Option and is compatible with kernels from 2.6.27 up to and including 2.6.34.
Extra convenience has been added - the package use usb-modeswitch in combination with UDEV rules to fully automate ZeroCD CDROM switching.
All in all a big step forward. :)
The drivers are available from my HSO driver forum. The latest versions will always be stickied at the top of the forum. (As of writing this post the driver package version is 1.1.0.)
