Thanks.

I think I've followed the README, but am getting this:

<fin>

Looks like a couple of problems.  keysym (??) instead of "XF86Info" needed? 
And  a problem with libvdr-skincurses.so.1.6.0

ls -l /root/vdr-1.6.0/PLUGINS/lib/libvdr-skincurses.so.1.6.0
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 142752 2008-11-15 12:48 
/root/vdr-1.6.0/PLUGINS/lib/libvdr-skincurses.so.1.6.0


What am I doing wrong?
