According to the release notes in the Avermedia 64-bit beta driver:

1.1 Supported Distributions

This version of driver installer supports kernel 2.6.17~2.6.31.

For whatever that is worth....

I would be interested to see what the Avermedia driver installation log 
had to say when the installation failed:



In looking at the last installer dialog screen, he appears to have 
symbol issues prior to trying to set up this device.

Is it likely a remnant of the previous issues he had trying to get the 
303U card running?

If so, I would be very tempted to wipe the install, and start with a 
fresh ubuntu install...

Good luck, ummu!
