Inserting a USB DVB-T stick

into a USB port, gives the following in dmesg with current FACTORY, and
similarly for openSUSE 11.1:

usb 5-1: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 2
usb 5-1: New USB device found, idVendor=0ccd, idProduct=0055
usb 5-1: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=0

usb 5-1: Manufacturer: AFA
usb 5-1: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
dvb-usb: found a 'TerraTec Cinergy T USB XE' in cold state, will try to
load a firmware
usb 5-1: firmware: requesting af9005.fw
dvb-usb: did not find the firmware file. (af9005.fw) Please see
linux/Documentation/dvb/ for more details on firmware-problems.
(-2)
dvb_usb_af9005: probe of 5-1:1.0 failed with error -2
usbcore: registered new interface driver dvb_usb_af9005

I didn't find linux/Documentation/dvb/ all that helpful, but Google is
your friend and so I got the firmware and stashed it to /lib/firmware.

So, my personal problem is addressed (except that the tuner fails to get
a signal "dvbsi: Cant tune DVB", but that may be due to bad signal).


However, my concern is that this is really not the experience we'd like
to provide to openSUSE users.

How can be improve upon this?

Get TerraTec to release the firmware under a license that we can
distribute it :)

thanks,
