DVB trouble [solved]

Recommended Posts

Anyone know what this means?

 

]# modprobe dvb-core
FATAL: Error inserting dvb-core (/lib/modules/2.6.8.1-12mdk/kernel/drivers/media/dvb/dvb-core/dvb-core.ko.gz): Device or resource busy

 

I've been trying for ages to get my tv card working and eventually got it down to this error which seem likely to be the cause.

 

The device shouldn't be busy because it's never actually worked!

I'm on MDK 10.1; Athlon 2400+ 512MB RAM.

 

Not really sure what else to tell you.

I realise there's not a lot of info here, but if anyone can tell me what info is needed, I'll post it quick as I can!

 

:thanks:

 

By the way, the card works fine under Windows so it's not broken or anyting.

 

Ed.

And here it is after I manually load the tuner and bttv modules:

(I'm not sure if bttv is required for digital tv ot not).

I'll head over there and check it out.

Thanks! :D

Well mine is an older card without the Connexant chipset so by all accounts it should be plain sailing with a 2.6 kernel.

 

I'm beginning to wonder if I;ve got some bits missing because I did an upgrade to 10.1 rather than a fresh install.

Is that possible?

 

Anyway, I think that given my knowledge and time restrictions I'm going to wait for 10.2 and do a clean install and see if it works then! :cheeky:
