Hello, thank you  so much Matthias.

That's OK, I understand. I don't know if it is really necessary to
have the media-tv/linuxtv-dvb-firmware package installed or not. If
yes, I don't know what's the right flag to set up as regard DVB_CARDS.

Yes, of course, I followed this guide:
(By the way, I don't think it is up to date - no all kernel options
are selectable)
I expecially did as the "Method A - Kernel-Drivers" says. I didn't do
the "pcimodules" command line because I compiled modules as "built in"
in the kernel.
Then I didn't go ahead since I don't know what to do with DVB_CARDS variable.

Thanks a lot,
