That's the next thing I'm going to look into.  I wasn't aware of this issue 
until yesterday, when I trawled Google again.  There's nothing in 
/var/log/messages that complains about any missing module.  If something 
yelled loud and hard, at me, about some missing module, I would've picked it 
up right away.  grepping for saa7127 in /var/log/messages comes up empty, 
but I'm going to try building it.
