[linux-dvb] kaffeine s2api v2 patch

Hello Darron,


I followed your instructions below which solved the compilation problem 
and I was able to compile and install kaffeine. Thanks.

A new scan found also the dvb-s2 channels (Anixe HD, Simul HD,...).

When I try to watch them, there are a lot of artifacts and picture 
hangers which is surely normal for a Pentium 4 and a nvidia 6610 XL.

However, kaffeine also crashes when watching hd content and in the last 
lines in the terminal (I launched it from terminal to have feedback), 
there is a "Internal error: picture buffer overflow".

As the crashes did not occur during channel switches, but while watching 
hd content, I suppose that the problem is rather due to xine than to the 
s2api patch.


Cheers,

Francesco
