Sorry if I need to ask again, but what does this actually mean with respect to that specific driver rtl2821u? I just wonder.

My problem is that in Ubuntu Hardy I managed to make this stick work, but in Debian SID I have no idea how to get it work. When I do

hg clone http://linuxtv.org/hg/v4l-dvb
make 
make install

the stick is not recognized. The entries in /var/log/syslog are:

Sep 15 23:35:55  kernel: usb 3-3: New USB device found, idVendor=14aa, idProduct=0160
Sep 15 23:35:55  kernel: usb 3-3: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=3
Sep 15 23:35:55  kernel: usb 3-3: Product: DTV Receiver

Sep 15 23:35:55  kernel: usb 3-3: SerialNumber: 0000000000010205

When I unpack and make & make install rtl2831u_dvb-usb_v0.0.2mod, syslog says:

Sep 15 23:40:17  kernel: usb 3-3: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 3

So, what can I try to make this stick work in Debian SID?

Greetings,
Peter
