How to install new drivers ( VU+ )
Here is a little guide to install new VuPlus drivers.

FOR OLD KERNEL

First of all make a backup copy of the current drivers, copy all the files in
/lib/modules/2.6.18-7.3/extra

When new drivers comes out, take tar.gz drivers file and unzip all files in
/lib/modules/2.6.18-7.3/extra
and replace old drivers.
Than reboot your decoder, that's all.


If image reboots correctly new drivers are compatible with your image, if image doesn't start it means that the drivers are not compatible and you have to wait for a image upgrade.
In this case to go back to old drivers, just connect with ftp and copy the drivers you backup before to:
/lib/modules/2.6.18-7.3/extra

FOR NEW 3.1.1 KERNEL

First of all make a backup copy of the current drivers, copy all the files in
/lib/modules/3.1.1/extra

When new drivers comes out, take tar.gz drivers file and unzip all files in
/lib/modules/3.1.1/extra
and replace old drivers.
Than reboot your decoder, that's all.
