That uses the af9015 driver which is definitely in Ubuntu 9.10, no need to
compile it. I am running a TinyTwin which uses the same chipset.
You may need to install the firmware from apt. From the command line do:
sudo apt-get install linux-firmware-nonfree
Then replug the dongle.
Also if you haven't already, do a update & dist-upgrade. The tuner should
appear in /dev/dvb
If not, report the last few lines of the output from "dmesg"
