It would be nice if you can subscribe to Linux DVB mailing [1] list and
post the driver there. The list is open to users and to developers, so,
maybe it would be interesting for you to participate there.

i couldn't find any response to the previous posting,
so i asked Realtek about a linux kernel driver for this rtl2831u
chipset (used in Freecom rev 4 DVB-T USB 2.0)

they've sent me the attached package, i hope it is usefull for the experts

i want to try to build this driver on ubuntu 7.10 x86 (32 bit) with 2.6.22kernel
but need some assistance, tutorial or FAQ, how i can start to do that.

i'm not sure if i can build the driver with using the v4l
