Journal talexb's Journal: modprobe and v4l

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.
