Hi!

 (This is mostly for the list since Joerg already knows...)

 I meanwhile have ported a few more plugins and the live and
vdradmin-am webinterfaces and am updating a preliminary shar that
can be used to install all that the FreeBSD /usr/ports way.  (tho
there are still rough edges and the ports are not commit-ready yet.)
See here:

 And yes you can now also use tuners on FreeBSD mainly thanx to
webcamd: (I am using a PCTV 452e Sat HDTV Pro USB dvb-s2 one.)

 Back to portability:  I you look at the patches in the shar,

	http://people.freebsd.org/~nox/dvb/vdrdevel-preliminary.shar

i.e. everything called */vdr*/files/patch-* in there (many are
from Joerg but I meanwhile also added quite a few), I think at least
those parts that touch C(++) sources and headers should be ready to
be merged back upstream (Makefile patches maybe less so) - so maybe
we should start submitting them back to the individual maintainers...

 Anyway, now you know. :)

 Cheers,
	Juergen
