Kernel config edit

Recommended Posts

Yeah i did realise they where firmware but i get my wordings mixed


I probably should have realised you'd realised :)


I've made a couple of dvb cards work and both were annoying. IIRC, some modules the cards needed were loaded but 1 or 2 other modules always got missed so they had to be loaded by force by putting their names in /etc/modprobe.conf or /etc/modprobe.preload. Not much help but perhaps something you could look into. Maybe post the output of lsmod here?

Are you completely sure you booted the right kernel?


I am now, ooops, silly me, i thought on reboot mandriva automagically puts new kernel at top of list, but the v4l side of it only goes as far as, from what i can make out the v4l-dvb-kernel-latest etc only patches the kernel, so it is only patching the & not the or the or


So now with the defaulted to boot i got my green light on, now just to suss out the scanning.

At least i know what's sort of going on, i might stand a fighting chance of getting this box working correctly.
