Hi

I followed the HowTo in http://konstantin.filtschew.de/blog/?p=68
but run into problems. dmesg reported:

I purchased the Hauppauge USB-TV-stick recently. I am living in Switzerland 
and do run GNU/Debian etch with the stock Debian kernel 2.6.8-4-686 on a 
MacMini Intel. uname -a reports
> Linux ng 2.6.18-4-686 #1 SMP Wed Feb 21 16:06:54 UTC 2007 i686 GNU/Linux
Comparing the output of dmesg with the one posted under 
http://linuxtv.org/v4lwiki/index.php/Em2880/dmesg gives me quite a few 
differences.
I did a hg clone http://mcentral.de/hg/~mrec/v4l-dvb-kernel today and compiled 
and installed the modules without any problems.

Does anybody have a clue what is wrong in my setup?

Best regards in advance.
