Drivers

There is a patch for the s2-liplianin driver that adds support for the SkyStar S2. Instructions (german) can be found here: ([[1]])

The patch can be extracted from the file and applied directly to the mainline linux source. Works pretty well then.

No support for 8PSK 3/4. To support the need to replace the crystal oscillator of 45 MHz to 66,667 MHz

[Update 2014/04/22]

With the latest patch / driver everything is working fine. Also for 8PSK 3/4 no hardware upgrade is needed.

The driver from Custler with latest adaption for 3.10 - 3.13 by Ducky ([[2]])
