Good luck...

I found a binary-only package with Linux drivers on the Samsung
website. With such binary files, you can't do very much. Though your
problem might indeed be a minor one: most bugfix methods for Linux
assume that you can modify one or the other source file.

But if you tell a bit more about the problem, somebody on this list
might have a suggestion. (But keep in mind that most people reading
the mailing list do not feel responsible for "other" software
packages, especially those for which no source code is available...)
