The compilation seemed perfect, but this appeared near the middle:

CC [M]  /n/data/src/mantis-v4l/v4l/hopper_cards.o
/n/data/src/mantis-v4l/v4l/hopper_cards.c:20:24: error: mantis_pci.h:
No such file or directory
/n/data/src/mantis-v4l/v4l/hopper_cards.c: In function 'hopper_pci_probe':
/n/data/src/mantis-v4l/v4l/hopper_cards.c:154: error: implicit
declaration of function 'mantis_pci_init'
/n/data/src/mantis-v4l/v4l/hopper_cards.c:214: error: implicit
declaration of function 'mantis_pci_exit'
/n/data/src/mantis-v4l/v4l/hopper_cards.c:200: warning: label 'fail5'

make[3]: *** [/n/data/src/mantis-v4l/v4l/hopper_cards.o] Error 1

There was no mantis_pci.[ch]. I copied these two files from the old
http://jusst.de/hg/mantis tree. Compilation OK, but then, after a bit
I got this:

CC [M]  ./mantis-v4l/v4l/mantis_ca.o
make[3]: *** No rule to make target
`./mantis-v4l/v4l/mantis_pcmcia.o', needed by
`./mantis-v4l/v4l/tda18271.o'.  Stop.
make[2]: *** [_module_./mantis-v4l/v4l] Error 2

Again, I copied mantis_pcmcia.c from the old tree and the compilation
finished. Later when I tried updating my copy, the files were there -
somebody fixed this as I was writing this mail, so I recompiled with
new files. :)

RESULTS (using "s2" dvb-apps):
- scanning DVB-S works
- scanning DVB-S2 doesn't work
- zapping DVB-S is fast

BUT there is a big problem now; even when I have FE_HAS_LOCK,
/dev/dvb/adapter0/dvr0 is dead; trying to read dvr0 blocks as if there
was no lock! Any suggestions? I'd really like to make this work - this
driver seems the best of both worlds! :)
