vdr installation problems

I have Suse10.1, skystar2 dvb card and I've been trying to configure vdr for the past couple of days.
I believe that I have installed all the pre-required packages before starting with vdr. Then I used xine-lib and xine-ui cvs, patched it with patches from xine-plugin, compiled, installed. After that I did make, make plugins in vdr directory. I created channels.conf using dvb-apps and with
./scan -o vdr dvb-s/Hispasat-30.0W | tee channels.conf
and then I put that file into /video directory.
Situtaion is this:
If I try
./vdr -P"xine -r"
MakePrimaryDevice: 1
SetVideoFormat: 0
frame: (0, 0)-(-1, -1), zoom: (1.00, 1.00)
SetAudioChannelDevice: 0
SetVolumeDevice: 255
SetPlayMode: 1
SetDigitalAudioDevice: 0
SetAudioChannelDevice: 0
SetPlayMode: 0
and it's just stays like that.

If I try:
xine vdr:/tmp/vdr-xine/stream#demux:mpeg_pes
xine starts up, and reports an error:

xine engine error
there's no input plugin available to handle
'xine vdr:/tmp/vdr-xine/stream#demux:mpeg_pes'
Maybe MRL syntax is wrong or file/strean source doesn't exist.

What am I doing wrong?
There were no errors reported during compilaton/installation of any components.
