The megasky tree is up-to-date enough -- You should be able to build it
against any recent kernel.

If you absolutely MUST use the megasky tree in conjunction with all of
the updates in the master branch, here is how:

hg clone http://linuxtv.org/hg/v4l-dvb
cd v4l-dvb
hg pull -u http://linuxtv.org/hg/~mkrufky/megasky
hg update -m
sudo make install

Again, you shouldnt need to do this.

If you find problems with the drivers in the megasky tree, please revert
to the vanilla megasky tree alone, before reporting bugs.  Standard method:

hg clone http://linuxtv.org/hg/~mkrufky/megasky
cd megasky
sudo make install

Please also keep in mind that I am not the developer of these megasky
drivers, I am only helping to store the contributions into a central
repository.  Please provide feedback to the linux-dvb mailing list, so
that the actual authors can use your feedback to improve the driver.

Please provide feedback regardless of whether you have a good or bad
experience -- Hopefully we will be able to merge this into the master
repository sooner than later.  :-)

Good Luck
