Tuner driver modules and kernel sources
« on: October 11, 2005, 03:17:35 pm »
I uploaded the cx88 and ivtv module packages for the new kernel here: newbielink:http://ftp://ftp.plutohome.com/pub/ [nonactive]. For now you'll have to download them manually and install the one you need using "dpkg -i <file>". The CX88 drivers we provide may be slightly older than the one in the kernel though...

I also uploaded an archive with the kernel sources as they were left after compiling the kernel (until I can figure out how to create a kernel-headers package from the after-build sources, like Debian does).

FATAL: Error after installing
« Reply #1 on: October 14, 2005, 06:19:41 am »
Just downloaded the new ivtv driver from the plutohome ftp in hopes of getting my media director with PVR-250 running properly.
#modprobe ivtv
gives this output after installing....

FATAL: Error inserting ivtv (/lib/modules/2.6.13.2-vanilla-pluto-1-686/extra/ivtv.ko): Invalid module format

Hi,

I have ivtv module running with pvr350. I compiled it by myself. I've posted my notes for pwc module :
newbielink:http://plutohome.com/support/phpbb2/viewtopic.php?t=342&highlight=ivtv+compile [nonactive]

I did this to compile mine :



Code: newbielink:javascript:void(0); [nonactive]
wget http://dl.ivtvdriver.org/ivtv/ivtv-0.3.8.tar.gz
tar -xzf ivtv-0.3.8.tar.gz
cd ivtv-0.3.8
make
make install
#5. unload any old drivers
modprobe -r ivtv

mv /lib/modules/2.6.13.2-vanilla-pluto-1-686/kernel/drivers/media/video/msp3400.ko /lib/modules/2.6.13.2-vanilla-pluto-1-686/kernel/drivers/media/video/msp3400.ko.HIDE
mv /lib/modules/2.6.13.2-vanilla-pluto-1-686/kernel/drivers/media/video/tda9887.ko /lib/modules/2.6.13.2-vanilla-pluto-1-686/kernel/drivers/media/video/tda9887.ko.HIDE
mv /lib/modules/2.6.13.2-vanilla-pluto-1-686/kernel/drivers/media/video/tuner.ko /lib/modules/2.6.13.2-vanilla-pluto-1-686/kernel/drivers/media/video/tuner.ko.HIDE

mv /lib/modules/2.6.13.2-vanilla-pluto-1-686/kernel/drivers/media/video/tveeprom.ko /lib/modules/2.6.13.2-vanilla-pluto-1-686/kernel/drivers/media/video/tveeprom.ko.HIDE

depmod -a

cd driver

# on this step remember that you shouldn't overwrite tveeprom.ko if you use bttv card....
#cp  *.ko /lib/modules/2.6.13.2-vanilla-pluto-1-686/kernel/drivers/media/video/

depmod -a

modprobe ivtv


remember that only problem I had with ivtv is that I reverted tveeprom.ko module to original state, cause my bttv card for motion stopped working. And also, now you have ivtv 0.4 release out....

HTH,

regards,

Rob.
