Drivers

Driver is integrated to mainline Linux kernel version >= 2.6.25-rc1. Also integrated into >=2.6.24-19 of Ubuntu Hardy Heron. If you have issues with tuning in 2.6.24-19 Ubuntu kernel, this can be resolved by using the linuxtv source as listed below.

$ cd v4l-dvb
$ make
# make install
# modprobe -v dvb-usb-dib0700

If you are running Ubuntu see bug #179626 and use linux-restricted-modules-2.6.24 version >= 2.6.24.8-7.18. Ubuntu 11.04 contains the firmware in the package named linux-firmware-nonfree.
