Thanks for the first preview.

I compiled the driver without problems, only the know dvb_net problem on 
FC5 kernel 2.6.17.
As Jens allready wrote I had to copy the cu1216.ko module by hand to the 
right modules location.

I have a VP-1034.

A modprobe mantis gives me the following in dmesg:

ACPI: PCI Interrupt 0000:02:0d.0[A] -> GSI 21 (level, low) -> IRQ 217
Mantis Rev 1, irq: 217, latency: 64

mantis_frontend_init (1): found MB86A16 DVB-S/DSS frontend @0x08
DVB: registering frontend 0 (Fujitsu MB86A16 DVB-S)...

It created the /dev/dvb/adapter0/(demux0 & dvr0 & frontend0 & net0) devices.

lspci -vv gives

        Interrupt: pin A routed to IRQ 217
        Region 0: Memory at f7eff000 (32-bit, prefetchable) [size=4K]

I will try to test it with different programs.
Does the driver also handle a diseqc motor ?
