[linux-dvb] Fwd: ubuntu installed geniatech x8000

      I *think* the problem is that it is not finding the .config file 
from building the kernel - If you look in the /boot directory 
ubuntu installs the .config file when it installs the kernel. However it 
will be called something like config-2.6.24-19-server. Copy the file to 
/lib/modules/`uname -r`/build/.config and try again.

Hope this helps

Cheers Paul
