No. 1.1.1 are for 2.6.4 (or 3) and won't work with higher kernels, you
have to use dvb-kernel from CVS for >= 2.6.9 .

Sorry if I ask something already answered, but it was not obvious for me.
Do the VSDB errors happen with the skystar2 card? If so, it's is a known
problem, but unfortunately not entirely solved yet.
The problem is, that suddenly no interrupts are created anymore. The only
solution (but a very rude one) is to reset the flexcop-chip by reloading
If the skystar is the problematic card, I suggest you to use dvb-kernel
CVS. There is a new driver for the Technisat/B2C2 cards
(b2c2-flexcop-pci). The VSDB-error still happens with that driver in some
cases though, but maybe it helps in your case.
