Never mind, I found your post on the Ubuntu forums with your driver tar.gz link, and that works great.

Also, what do you mean by, "the second link"?

This doesn't work as described in 13.10 64bit as of today (27 Mar 2014). I get compile errors when I try to build the package. I've got the headers installed, etc. The errors involve undefined symbols.

@the_Seppi well gee thanks but the solution given in the other AskUbuntu question on the topic doesn't work. I'm now seeing exactly the same problem on a different machine. The update-manager gets to a point at which it simply will not start at all.

@the_Seppi the problem is that do-release-upgrade crashes with a Python exception.

comment Possible to mount an Eye-Fi Mobi card on Ubuntu?
@Braiam I don't know; I'll check. The Eye-Fi support people suggested that it might be a power issue, because their cards are basically complete little computers and they draw more power than a standard card.
