Yeah. Alan did you compile the driver into the kernel?

My setup:

vdr:~# lsmod | grep b2c2
b2c2_flexcop_pci        7960  0
b2c2_flexcop           27276  1 b2c2_flexcop_pci
mt352                   6276  1 b2c2_flexcop
bcm3510                10500  1 b2c2_flexcop
stv0299                10888  1 b2c2_flexcop
nxt2002                 9092  1 b2c2_flexcop
stv0297                11396  1 b2c2_flexcop
mt312                   7940  1 b2c2_flexcop
dvb_core               76072  2 b2c2_flexcop,dvb_usb
firmware_class          7936  4 b2c2_flexcop,bcm3510,nxt2002,dvb_usb

vdr:~# ls /sys/bus/pci/drivers
Intel ICH  PCI_IDE  PIIX_IDE  Technisat/B2C2 FlexCop II/IIb PCI 
agpgart-intel  dgrs  ehci_hcd  matroxfb  parport_pc  tg3  uhci_hcd

I did quite a few mistakes during the last months, but this one is one of 
the top 3! *grmpf* I should read more docs and header-files.

sorry for that mess,
Patrick.
