talexb's Journal: modprobe and v4l

Journal by talexb

So it finally appeared (from the V4L mailing list) that modprobe ivtv was going to load the appropriate driver for this card into the kernel, so I ran it, and .. nothing changed.

I don't even know where to look for help .. I wonder where the log files are when xawtv decides to silently croak. I also tried adding alias /dev/v4l ivtv to /etc/modules.conf but that changed nothing.

Hardrake isn't sure about the card; it has a Bus ID for the card, and knows that the Media Class is Multimedia_video, but has not picked up on the Vendor, Description or Module.

Now I'm wondering if I should reinstall Mandrake 10 from scratch. Hmm. I do have a copy of FreeBSD 5 that I've been meaning to try, so maybe I'll do that first.
