Guenter, which checkout date does your dvb-kernel has?
In current dvb-kernel the yakumo device is driven by dvb-usb-* and not by
dibusb anymore (even though the sources of dibusb are still there). If you
you don't need to rename firmware files.
Mark, you probably use the driver from the kernel, don't you? Please use
dvb-kernel instead, as already suggested by Guenter and as described
Guenter I'm interested in the crashes you describe. Can you post more
information about it?
