There was a rewrite and renaming (along with the firmware name) of the
dibusb-driver and it is not included in any mainstream kernel, yet. In
dvb-kernel CVS all traces of the old driver have been removed, so the
Unfortunately the old driver only says that "it doesn't find a firmware"
but not which one. The firmware data from dvb-usb-dibusb-126.96.36.199.fw is
correct, but not the filename.
It has to be "dvb-dibusb-188.8.131.52.fw". So renaming is good enough.
