Be careful with this. I've got one, and it's non-trivial to get going
(well, it's non-trivial to get going if you want to keep the guarantees
your package manager gives you about the authenticity of the code on
your system. It's apparently straightforward otherwise). I did try to
make a set of packages to make it work, but it uses a different version
of the v4l2 code than what is in the mainline kernel (at least as of
2.6.9. I'm not sure about now).
This is fixed by running 'DVB-Build.sh remove-symbols'. This particular
reconciles Version Number conflicts.
C Pascoe has tested these drivers on stock kernel 2.6.9.
I have tested it on 2.6.9-1.667 and 2.6.10-rc3.
Unless you're more of a kernel build
ninja than I am, you won't be able to do a clean build of it and you'll
need to use the rather dodgy method described on Chris Pascoe's website,
which involves mangling the module dependencies file.
On Fedora Core 2 or 3 the default kernel has all the pre-requisite
for 'CONFIGS'. So, no need to re-compile the kernel.
