Yes, I knew this, but the fact that distributions that ship 2.6 also ship dvb drivers is a good reason why vdr won't definitely be buried, in fact I'd say it'll make deployment easier (unless you're vdr main developer, that is ;-).Luca Olivetti wrote:Klaus Schmidinger wrote:So, the "fact" is: Distros ship kernel 2.6 -> no DVB driver!Since the dvb driver itself is in the 2.6 kernel tree if the distro supplies a 2.6 kernel it also supplies a dvb driver so I see no problem here unless you want to use the latest cvs (i.e bleeding edge) drivers. In fact in some cases (dxr3 comes to mind) I had better results with the distro supplied drivers than with the cvs ones.Ok, so I guess I should have written Distros ship kernel 2.6 -> no _latest_ DVB driver! because if I start using the linux-dvb driver under kernel 2.6 for VDR development, I sure want to use the latest driver from CVS.
