Tuner not detected - kernel upgrade?
« on: December 29, 2008, 10:16:03 am »
Hi guys,

I’m trying to setup my new mediacenter and everything goes fine until I have to use my DVB-C tuners(SATELCO EasyWatch PCI DVB-C HDTV "Basic Edition", see http://linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/Satelco_EasyWatch_PCI_%28DVB-C%29).

I thing, that they are not supported by the kernel version that LinuxMCE is shipped with.
So I have been trying to follow this wiki-page (http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Upgrading_the_Kernel) to upgrade the kernel, however

I get the following error right after typing the command:
mkinitramfs -o /boot/initrd.img-2.6.26.5 2.6.26.5

I get the following errors:
find:  /lib/firmware/2.6.26.5: No such file or directory
find:  /lib/firmware/2.6.26.5: No such file or directory
find:  /lib/firmware/2.6.26.5: No such file or directory
find:  /lib/firmware/2.6.26.5: No such file or directory
find:  /lib/firmware/2.6.26.5: No such file or directory
find:  /lib/firmware/2.6.26.5: No such file or directory

I have tried just to ignore it, however the computer cannot boot of it – it can’t see my soft raid drives – and I have included the soft raid in the kernel  :)

Anyone who can help me with this one?


Please
/Jones

I have had the same problem, I also got

find:  /lib/firmware/2.6.26.5: No such file or directory

Mine boots and I see the kubuntu splash screen and does the beeps then nothing.

ALso when choosing the modules at the part where it ask for your core family. I have a AMD 64bit quad core, but I am running mce 32 bit so i don t know if i should pick the I38 option or AMD 64.
Asus m3n78-pro
AMD Phenom 9950 Quad-Core 2.60 GHz
250 gig sata drive x2
Sata Dvd-rw
4 gigs ram
usb-uirt
LinuxMCE 7.10 32 bit
Vista eternity 32 bit

Before making the initrd image do the following

Code: [Select]
cd /lib/firmware
ln -s 2.6.22-14-generic 2.6.26.5
