Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat and VLC not working with Dreambox Streaming

Was disappointed today after updating to Ubuntu Maverick and finding out my Dreambox could no longer stream from my PC... wanna know how to fix it.. easy just install an older version of vlc.. but wait you cant  do that with apt-get you need to compile from source...

this should help..
sudo apt-get remove vlc

sudo apt-get purge vlc
sudo apt-get autoremove
sudo apt-get build-dep vlc
bunzip2 vlc-1.0.6.tar.bz2 
tar xf vlc-1.0.6.tar 
cd vlc-1.0.6/
sudo make install
sudo ldconfig
