Hey guys

I have pre-ordered a BFL Jalapeno, and was wondering what I will have to do with my kernel config.
I use Gentoo Linux and prefer to build my kernel manually.
Anyone have any idea what "device drivers" I will need to enable in order for my system and cgminer to see the device?
Also, do I need to do anything to the cgminer config in order for it to see the little cup warmer?  Grin

Many thanks.
Peace.

the hardware is not yet available, the mining software is not yet written, any advice is at best a guess

I seem to recall BFL_Josh (Inaba) saying something about having to "modprobe" some device driver, although that me applicable to FGPA's. So I was wondering if that will be the case when the Jalapeno is released.
There is also something on the BFL labs page about libusb. If your system has a working USB, then it should just work.
However, as I am using Gentoo Linux, I fear I may have to enable something in the kernel.

I do get the impression cgminer will be able to work with the jalapeno when it's released.
