Please cc the list in all email, which I've done.

Check the /var/log/messages or kern.log files to see what they contain.

Or, if the system isn't booting, remove the module from your 
/lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/drivers/media/video/cx23885 dir then boot 
again.

The card won't get initialised by the driver won't exist, then you can 
install the driver with 'make install' which will install it from your 
linux-dvb/v4l test tree, then load it at your own leisure with modprobe 
cx23885 debug=1.
