Well, FWIW, I have an Canon A60 (basically the same, the A70 only has 3
Megapixel, the A70 2 Mpixel) and its running fine with a 4.9-stable.
Even on my Compaq notebook with some weird stuff, gphoto2 autodetects
the camera, camera must be set to playback mode (the switch beneath the
LCD must point to the blue playback icon)

A colleague uses a A40 with FBSD 5.2, but IIRC it also worked with

What does gphoto2 --auto-detect say?

(I'm @work now, will have a look later with my camera to compare things)
