The guy at http://www. *** com.net/~dcoffin/dcraw/ says the Minolta
Dimage A2 works with his dcraw program (for downloading RAW files
instead of JPEGs), so I'd say "yes". Did you Google for "dimage a2
linux"? That should've been your first step.
Kernel versions have 3 numbers. There's a *vast* difference between
2.4.1 and 2.4.26. SuSE 8.0 is pretty damn old, so the first thing you
should do is to get the latest possible kernel, install it, and use it.
It may be that the device's USB IDs aren't in the database of supported
IDs for your older kernel, and it'll just work as a USB Mass Storage
device or something when you upgrade the kernel. You should get the
latest version of gphoto as well if you want to use that program. HTH,
