Sorry if I misunderstand but does this mean that my tablet will not work
in intrepid but only in intrepit+1? If so what should I do in the
meantime? Many bugs related to the tablet have ***finally*** been solved
in intrepid after two or three releases of waiting so using hardy is a
very poor alternative. Please leave a "backdoor" in this killing machine
to make my humble xorg.conf work :)
