Hello all,

I also have the TerraTec Cinergy C and it works like a charm, without the CAM 
module. With the cam module I also get the "slave RACK fail" message. The 
system becomes sort of unusable until I do a rmmod mantis. That takes very, 
very long, but it succeeds.

I use 2.6.25-gentoo-r7 as kernel on a AMD64. I tried the latest driver.

What can I do to help debug this?

Thank you!
