Hi,

I just used the MAKEDEV.sh script of the CVS drivers, but this did not 
help. Furthermore, I think that there is a problem with the USB hotplug, 
because when I plug in a Nova-T USB 2 or a Cinergy T2 there is no 
message in the /var/log/messages. But I took a look into the Kernel 
configuration (based on the SuSE kernel config) and DVB USB support is 
enabled as well as all the other USB settings in the USB driver section.

With kind regards

Joerg
