[linux-dvb] Checkinstall multiproto?

Hello again,

I'm trying to install the multiproto drivers using checkinstall. I'm 
currently trying lots of different drivers through each other, and make 
rminstall or make distclean never get ALL of the files out, so I want to 
make a debian out of them to keep my system clean.

Making the deb is no problem.
Unfortunately, these drivers need to overwrite a certain file 
(ir-common.ko) which is already in another, important, package 

Could someone give any pointers how I could fix this?
