[linux-dvb] compiling as modules, for Freecom DVB-T USB stick

Hi,

I am trying to figure out if the Freecom DVB-T USB Stick is likely to
work on my system.  I have a Sony TX1XP laptop, with USB 2.0 sockets,
running Kubuntu Breezy with a 2.6.12-10-686 kernel.

Based on

  http://linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/DVB_USB#Introduction

I believe I need the following modules loaded, which I think I have,
given the evidence shown:

  i2c-core
    # lsmod | grep -i i2c_core
    i2c_core               21200  4 i2c_acpi_ec,eeprom,i2c_sensor,i2c_i801

  crc32
    # grep -i crc32 /boot/config-2.6.12-10-686
    CONFIG_CRYPTO_CRC32C=m
    CONFIG_CRC32=y
    CONFIG_LIBCRC32C=m

  firmware_class
    # lsmod | grep -i firmware
    firmware_class          9952  1 ipw2200

  dvb-core.ko
    # lsmod | grep dvb_core
    dvb_core               80616  0

Plus the following, which as best I can see, I don't have atm and
there is no reference to in /boot/config...:

  dvb-pll.ko
  dvb-usb.ko
  dvb-usb-dtt200u.ko

Q: Is there any way I can compile these as modules and modprobe them into place?

If so, would anyone be able to point me at some instructions?  Or, if
I'm checking out of CVS, which branch is likely to be most compatible
with the 2.6.12-10 kernel I have? I would guess dvb-kernel?

Recompiling the kernel is an issue for me, as I've yet to figure out
how to do this such that it replicates all the features I get from the
Kubuntu stock.

Thanks!

Murray.
