I also see the mt352, cx88_blackbird, lgdt330x, i2c_core, i2c_algobit, 
v4l1_compat, or51132 and ir_common modules loaded on SuSE 10.0 currently 
with vanilla kernel 2.6.15-git9 on my box and SuSE 10 2.6.13-15 on my 
daughter's box. The remote works on hers but not on mine and I keep 
forgetting to take it with me to see if it's a problem with my remote. 
On both boxes I just plugged the card in and booted up. I use xawtv and 
kaffeine on both (SuSE 10.0 needed xine-lib to be built from sources as 
SuSE stays shy of any patent encumbered codecs). On my box I also built 
and installed mythtv which works fine.
Great card at a good price, wished I'd purchased one for my Mandriva 
2006 box, I would have saved quite a bit of cash if I had got one 
instead of the Hauppaugue Nova-T.
