DVB on Debian GNU/kFreeBSD -- v4l-compat?


as you may know, DVB applications are currently not supported on
GNU/kFreeBSD. I searched the internet and found
a project which aims to provide drivers for FreeBSD via a V4L2
compatibility layer; and the needed header files for building

If we want DVB support on GNU/kFreeBSD, we would need to:

  a) add the linux/dvb/ headers to kfreebsd-kernel-headers,
     should be easy. Either adapt directly from linux-2.6
     or adapt from v4l-compat, the latter probably being
     the safer choice.
  b) package v4l-compat

Currently, v4l-compat only seems to support one driver, but
it should be possible to enable more drivers with minor

I don't think that I have the time or knowledge to do this,
but I am providing this here in case someone else wants to
