[linux-dvb] getting started

I once had my TechnoTrend DVB-C driver working with linux, looking tv.
However, completely forgot how I managed that.

I think I was following the wiki

How to Obtain, Build and Install V4L-DVB Device Driver

I checked out the v4l-dvb sources using Mercurial.
However, a make failed immediately:

make -C /home/rsc/src/v4l-dvb/v4l
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/rsc/src/v4l-dvb/v4l'
Updating/Creating .config
Preparing to compile for kernel version 2.6.28
File not found: /lib/modules/2.6.28-7.slh.3-sidux-686/build/.config at
./scripts/make_kconfig.pl line 32, <IN> line 4.
make[1]: *** Keine Regel vorhanden, um das Target ».myconfig«,
  benötigt von »config-compat.h«, zu erstellen.  Schluss.
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/rsc/src/v4l-dvb/v4l'
make: *** [all] Fehler 2

Am I on the right track?
If so, what is missing?
