Yes, I answered in another thread, sorry.

I had built the kernel as a single unit, with "y" instead of "m" for all the options. But the DVB
part MUST be in modules, otherwise the /dev/dvb entries never get built.


The lsmod command shows the following:
root at default:~# lsmod
Module                  Size  Used by
cx88_dvb                3884  -
video_buf_dvb           4268  -
dvb_core               65992  -
cx24123                 7788  -
root at default:~#

I hope that sometime soon this would be fixed so that these modules can again be part of the kernel.
