AVerMedia AVerTV Hybrid+FM Cardbus (E506R) - Drivers problem

Hi! At first sorry for my bad english but it's not my native language. I've got problem with my Tuner TV - AVerMedia AVerTV Hybrid+FM CardBus. Card is seen by lspci as "07:00.0 Multimedia controller: Philips Semiconductors SAA7133/SAA7135 Video Broadcast Decoder (rev d1)". Driver made by producer was compiled on FC3\4 on standared kernel, so it's not usable . I found opensource driver on mcentral.de, but i can't compile that. When I type "make" I've got
Code:
[root@localhost v4l]# make
scripts/make_makefile.pl
No version yet.
Updating/Creating .config
Preparing to compile for kernel version 2.6.24

***WARNING:*** You do not have the full kernel sources installed.
This does not prevent you from building the v4l-dvb tree if you have the
kernel headers, but the full kernel source may be required in order to use
make menuconfig / xconfig / qconfig.

If you are experiencing problems building the v4l-dvb tree, please try
building against a vanilla kernel before reporting a bug.

Vanilla kernels are available at http://kernel.org.
On most distros, this will compile a newly downloaded kernel:

cp /boot/config-`uname -r` <your kernel dir>/.config
cd <your kernel dir>
make all modules_install install

Please see your distro's web site for instructions to build a new kernel.

Now I haven't got any ideas. If someone ask
Code:
[root@localhost ~]# uname -r
2.6.24.4-64.fc8
[root@localhost ~]# rpm -qa | grep kernel
kernel-2.6.24.3-50.fc8
kernel-2.6.24.3-34.fc8
kernel-2.6.24.4-64.fc8
kernel-headers-2.6.24.4-64.fc8
kernel-devel-2.6.24.4-64.fc8
What mistake I made?

From what I see you are using experimental drivers. Are there any others that you could try to compile?

I also noticed that it suggests trying to compile against a vanilla kernel.

Probably not, but if someone know another, please leave the message.

I know, but it's mean compile new kernel right? I think it's not good idea.

I've ran a vanilla kernel with Fedora just fine before. But you may need to compile a few things yourself that may not be compatible with the new kernel. If you don't care to try that and then see what happens that is. Don't forget you can always keep your fedora kernel and if you have never compiled your own kernel before it's not hard there are plenty of places that explain how. I am just curious myself as to if it will work fine with the vanilla kernel since the drivers are experimental and it suggests using it.
