1) run kaffeine from a term. Kaffeine tries to 
open /dev/dvb/adapter(1-4)/frontend0, and print the result on stderr.

2) if you compile kaffeine from sources, make sure configure can find dvb 
headers in /usr/include/linux/dvb/ (symlinks are ok). The dvb part won't be 
compiled without these headers.

3) on FC4, you will need to add -fasynchronous-unwind-tables to CXXFLAGS or QT 
threads will fail to terminate.
