Is anyone successfully using kernel 2.6.11-1.27_FC3 from atrpms with
the nova t dvb board?

I was so close to having a working system on 2.6.10-1.770_14.rhfc3.at.
 I'd got my nova-t card working and tuned,  but went to bed without
installing the alsa sound drivers.   When I came back to it yesterday
the 2.6.10 kernel had disappeard from the atrpms site, along with the
alsa-kmdl-2.6.10 driver.

Upgrading to 2.6.11-1.27_FC3 has caused me all sorts of dvb grief.  Namely:

the dvb modules that I was modprobing (cx88-dvb etc) do not exist.
Downloading cx88-kmdl-2.6.11-1.27_FC3 produces the modules, but when I
try and modprobe I get the following error:

Error inserting cx88_dvb (/lib/modules ....   /cx88-dvb.ko):Unknown
symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)

dmesg says:

cx88_dvb: unknown symbol mt352_attach
cx88_dvb: unknown symbol mt352_write
cx88_dvb: unknown symbol mt352_attach
cx88_dvb: unknown symbol mt352_write

Googling produces 3 or 4 instances of the same problem, but with no
solution that I can understand.  It's so frustrating that I am so
close.  I can record programmes using the 2.6.10 kernel and watch them
without sound, but if I want sound I have to reboot to the 2.6.11. 
Maybe I can get the sound working without alsa but I've failed so far.

Any help in getting the dvb modules loaded under 2.6.11 would be
gratefully received.

As a workaround if anyone has got a copy of
alsa-kmdl-2.6.10-1.770_14.rhfc3.at.i686 sitting in their cache and
could send me a copy that would help.
