Hello,

I just bought a Terratec Cinergy 1400 XE because of the label "Yes, it 
supports Linux" on the cover of the box.
After installation of the card I downloaded the v4l-dvb-Sources, 
compiled and installed them as was said to do in the DVB-Wiki.
After reboot of the computer, I could'nt find a device in /dev/dvb. 
Inspection of the /var/log/messages shows that the card is detected, but 
a device /dev/video and a /dev/vbi0 is registered instead of a dvb-device.
Now I am at the end of my capabilities -- what goes wrong on my computer ??

Here I paste a part of /var/log/messages:

I hope that there is anyone in this mailing list, who can give me a hint !!
My system is Ubuntu 6.10 with generic kernel.

Thanks a lot,
