1. Any pointers concerning the cap_t problem?

2. A small note on what kernel is required for the hg driver download on 
http://www.cadsoft.de/vdr/download.htm would be nice.

3. What about the runvdr script? It's fairly clear how it is supposed to 
work on Linux 2.4 systems, but what about 2.6 systems? There is no 
../DVB/driver dir there...

Nevertheless, I'm quite impressed that users who do not closely follow the 
VDR development are not forgotten (i.e., an UPGRADE-1.2-0 document exists 
:-). Thanks!

Regards
