Where did you take your kernel sources ?
I'm using a 2.4.11 kernel from

O+ xavier

PS: I have developped a driver for the vme part (highly inspired from
Gabriel Paubert one's)
with a rtlinux response for the interrupts. I have put it under GPL, but
for the moment
I don't have a ftp server to put it...
I don't have tested it with others kernels (the rtlinux part can easily be
replaced by a normal irq gestion).
