WinTV PVR150 cannot load modules

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I have installed the following rpm pacakges for my WinTV PVR150 personal video recorder:

 

ivtv-firmware

ivtv-stable

perl-Video-ivtv

 

- All required modules are present in /lib/modules/2.6.12-22mdk/kernel/drivers/media/video.

- The firmware is present in /lib/modules.

 

However, the dmesg file indicates that modules tveeprom, tuner, and msp3400 cannot be found, even though they are present as indicated above.

 

So far as I can tell, this is the only thing keeping the card from working.

 

Is anyone else having this problem? I have a standard 2006.0 setup with everything installed through Mandriva rpms.

 

The dmesg output is as follows:

Thanks, but I already went through the compiling route, with basically the same results. My problem is that the packaged rpms don't seem to put the modules in the correct location (but they do exist).

 

For example, if I try to load the modules manually, this is what happens:

 

[root@localhost ~]# modprobe tveeprom

FATAL: Module tveeprom not found.

 

The point is that the rpm packages shouldn't be placing modules where they can't be found. Isn't this a configuration issue with the packages?

Do these RPM`s are for Mandriva distro?

And, do You trying runing this card on original drivers from this kernel?

 

modinfo tveeprom

Sometimes if You have modules use insmod, and send result

lspci | grep video

 

Drivers must be for concrete kernel

If You do,t know what`s are doing install kernel-source and type

cd /us/src/linux

make modules_install

modprobe tvaudio

modprobe cx8800

modprobe cx88xx card=xx

modprobe tuner type=xx ###if needed

xawtv -hwscan

 

Don`t worry, be happy ....Lex
