Hello all,

I new to the list.
I have a tv tuner Avermedia avertv usb 2.0.
I run on the mandriva 2006 powerpack.
I download the kernel 2.6.14

I unpack this kernel to /usr/src/linux-2.6.14
rm /usr/src/linux
ln -s /usr/src/linux-2.6.14 /usr/src/linux
cd /usr/src/linux-2.14
cp ../linux-2.6.12-12mdk/.config .config
make menuconfig
CONFIG_DVB=y
CONFIG_DVB_CORE=m
CONFIG_DVB_USB=m
# CONFIG_DVB_USB_DEBUG is not set
CONFIG_DVB_USB_A800=m
CONFIG_DVB_USB_DIBUSB_MB=m
CONFIG_DVB_USB_DIBUSB_MC=m

make
make modules
make modules_install
make install

I download 
http://www.linuxtv.org/downloads/firmware/dvb-usb-avertv-a800-02.fw and 
copy this file under :
 /lib/firmware/
 /usr/lib/hotplug/firmware/

 I reboot the system with the new kernel and :

modprobe i2c-core
modprobe firmware_class
modprobe dvb-core
modprobe dvb-pll

modprobe dib3000-common
modprobe dib3000mc
modprobe dvb-usb
modprobe dvb-usb-dibusb-common
modprobe dvb-usb-a800

But now, How can I check if this hardware work ?
I start xine and clic on the dvb button but without succès.
I don't know what is missing.

Can you help me ?
Thanks in advance
Guy
