Apologies if this list is not the correct place for troubleshooting.  If it
is not, please let me know and I'll redirect my queries elsewhere.
 
I'm having a lot of trouble getting my DViCo Fusion DVB-T Plus loaded
properly.  It appears to be the 1.1 revision (the chip ends with a -39
rather than a -19, which I believe is the indicator).  The card is detected;
lspci gives correct information about the card, and /dev/v4l/video0 and vbi0
exist.  The problem is that /dev/dvb/ is not getting created.
 
While I'm not a linux newbie, I am very green when it comes to manually
configuring hardware drivers and the like.  I've tried to follow Chris
Pascoe's instructions here (
http://www.itee.uq.edu.au/~chrisp/Linux-DVB/DVICO/ ), but to be honest I'm a
bit overwhelmed.
 
Here's the relevant excerpt of my kernel .config:

I've left out a few bits in these sections that were irrelevant or entirely
not set.  I'm not really sure what I need to be loading here, so I've
probably left out something important, and I've almost certainly compiled in
options that I don't need.
 
After building my kernel, I extracted this tar (
http://linuxtv.org/hg/~pascoe/v4l-dvb?ca=cec41e698b97;type=bz2 ) from
Pascoe's site and, as advised, followed the instructions on this page (
http://www.linuxtv.org/repo/#build ).  The make section seems to work
correctly, but I get several errors during the make install section.  The
last one is:
 
install: cannot stat 'dvb-firesat.ko' : No such file or directory
make: [dvb-install] Error 1 (ignored)
/sbin/depmod -a 2.6.16-gentoo-r9
 
When I reboot, the card is still not detected.  I've tried to run this
installer and then recompile the kernel, with no joy.
 
What I would really like is a concise set of instructions for the procedures
required to get the new revision of this card to work under 2.6.16.  The
instruction on Chris Pascoe's site seem to assume that the user has more
knowledge with this kind of thing than I do.  On top of that, it seems that
many of the instructions are apparently no longer required, but I'm not
entirely sure which ones.
 
If anyone has any pointers or tips (or, ideally, a full-blown walkthrough
:P), please let me know.  I'm happy to provide more information (lspci/dmesg
output, etc) if required.
