Hello list,

pvrusb2-mci-20050921 builds fine.

Linux LX.localdomain 2.6.12-1.1456_FC4 #1 Thu Sep 22 02:11:36 EDT 2005
x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

(Red Hat) Fedora Core 4

Installs to /lib/modules/`uname -r/pvrusb2
... is this intentional?  modprobe doesn't find it there.

That also requires manually loading both v4l1-compat.ko and
v4l2-common.ko (ie, modprobe v4l1-compat; modprobe v4l2-common) before
manually insmodding everything there, which isn't immediately obvious.

Perhaps a quick note in the documentation or FAQ?

The README in the tarball also doesn't explicitly state that the
firmware is absolutely required, it simply nonchalantly tells you there
are things in there that might help.

Please forgive me if I sound crass, I'm simply reporting a couple minor
gotchas, having not followed the driver for quite awhile.
