[linux-dvb] freecom

I am trying to get the freecom-dvb-t device working on fc6.
I copied the firmware (dvb-usb-wt220u-fc03.fw) in /lib/firmware. I 
obtained the driver from linuxtv.org (v4l-dvb), compiled and installed 
it without any problem.
Now as I understand from the wiki I should have a non-empty 
/dev/dvb/adapter0/, but this is not the case. I do not have a /dev/dvb 
at all.
When I plug in the device it is somehow being recognized; this is the 
output of tail -f /var/log/messages:
Mar 18 21:23:41 cello syslogd 1.4.1: restart.
Mar 18 21:37:16 cello kernel: usb 5-5: new high speed USB device using 
ehci_hcd and address 7
Mar 18 21:37:17 cello kernel: usb 5-5: configuration #1 chosen from 1 

Does anybody have a clue?
Any help would be appreciated.
