Works fine now, breaks tomorrow. We had the dvb kernel module
package long enough and I was so glad when the dvb drivers finally
went into the upstream kernel. I'm not going to maintain another
kernel module package again.

I just tried a vdr built with the multiproto headers with normal dvb
drivers. Doesn't work. That means vdr 1.5.13 is the last version I
can build useful packages for atm.
