Should I report a bug already in Linux Kernel bug list

Asked by Barry Fishman on 2017-04-28

I have filed a bug #856607 with Debian and someone filed as bug #194941 in the Linux kernel.

After about a month there has been no response to either request.

In general I have gotten a better response when I filed bugs here. Should I do so, or would that be improper.

Reliable information on TV cards that work with linux is hard to get and this is one of the few cards that do, at least up to kernel 4.9.

For completeness' sake the correct references to the other bug trackers:
https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=856607
https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=194941

You are free to create a bug report in the Ubuntu system, but I am not sure whether much will be done with it, except waiting for the other organizations (kernel and Debian) to act first.

Can you help with this problem?
