[linux-dvb] Module loading error

I am using the CVS version of the DVB drivers with FC4 (Nexus-s card) for
MythTV. After compiling the new drivers, I got some errors during insmod.
So, I went ahead and added modprobe.conf to my /etc/rc.local file in order
to load the module at startup (without this the dvb-ttpci module does not
get loaded at startup). But, I have some issues:

Here is my dmesg output:

stv0299: Unknown symbol timeval_usec_diff
stv0299: Unknown symbol dvb_frontend_sleep_until
Linux video capture interface: v1.00
dvb_ttpci: Unknown symbol stv0299_writereg
dvb_ttpci: Unknown symbol stv0299_attach


saa7146: register extension 'dvb'.


saa7146: found saa7146 @ mem eea5a000 (revision 1, irq 3) (0x13c2,0x000e).
DVB: registering new adapter (Technotrend/Hauppauge WinTV Nexus-S rev2.3).
adapter has MAC addr = 00:d0:5c:24:09:a8
dvb-ttpci: gpioirq unknown type=0 len=0
dvb-ttpci: info @ card 0: firm f0240009, rtsl b0250018, vid 71010068, app
dvb-ttpci: firmware @ card 0 supports CI link layer interface
dvb-ttpci: Crystal audio DAC @ card 0 detected
saa7146_vv: saa7146 (0): registered device video0 [v4l2]
DVB: registering frontend 0 (ST STV0299 DVB-S)...
dvb-ttpci: found av7110-0.

Although the module is loaded, the device permissions seem to get reset
every time I reboot. As a result, I get a Cannot open DVB device -
Permission Denied error at the start of Myth backend. I have to change the
permissions of /dev/dvb/* manually with chmod, after which Myth is able to
open the DVB card.

Is there a better way to get the loaded correctly at startup with the
correct device permissions?

Thank you!
