I myself am currently testing such a USB box with this driver package. Except for afew glitches it works quite well for me (USB box are connected to an active multiswitch).I've tried this dkms a few days ago and it didn't work. Modules made by dkms lacked some symbols (I don't know how it's possible if theycompiled without problem). Maybe scripts doesn't play well with Debiankernel (3.2) or maybe I had bad version of kernel headers?
Well the DKMS package is for Ubuntu Precise. It contains pre-compiled amd64 modules for the currently valid kernel version of Ubuntu Precise.
If you install it on a different environment (Debian or Ubuntu 32bit), all the modules will be re-built automatically and this take 10-30 minutes depending on your CPU power. Give it a try with an Ubuntu Precise installation to save time.
Also use the patched dkms package from the yavdr repos. The upstream Ubuntu package dkms contains a bug that causes very slow de-installation of the linux-media-dkms package.
