sorry, I didn't get my previous mail now, I see, so I am adding it.
What went wrong I don't know.



the v4l-dvb-hg doesn't compile with the new kernel 2.6.24-gentoo. I am 
pretty sure I followed the instruction from the vdr-wiki for installing 
the drivers (kernel options). I have just for security rebuild the 
kernel using genkernel --clean --menuconfig all.

As the ebuild is just pulling the source from mercurial, I thought, I 
just leave a message here and maybe somebody can look into it.
