It's not xine who crash : it's the driver, which in turn make VDR
crash... which just happen more often is VDR is used with the
xine-plugin.

I would personaly highly prefer just to be able to compil my kernel and
boot from it whithout having to worry about to still compil anything
else.

BUT : I must agree your way is also good, and I will certainly try it
with the just released 2.6.15 :) (I have already asked here but didn't
get an answer : the make in v4l-dvb/v4l will install for /usr/src/linux
version or for uname -r version ?
