Hi Simon,

with the v4llib it looks much better, even if colors are not real as before.
I think i need to tune it a little bit.

In the driver homepage it seems they suggest to continue using the old
driver with kernelspace decode for desktop or fast machines, but
unfortunatly it doesn't even compile with 2.6.27.
