/etc/modprobe.conf not being parsed?


Hey,

I'm trying to install a Compro VideoMate DVB T300 capture card, and have installed all the necessary Kernel modules and drivers (from the video4linux/linux-dvb CVS)

Now, I have the problem that its not picking up my modprobe commands on boot. In /etc/modprobe.conf, I place:

Code:
options modprobe saa7134 oss=1 card=70
options modprobe saa7134-dvb
...but dmesg is showing:

Code:
# dmesg | grep saa
saa7130/34: v4l2 driver version 0.2.14 loaded
saa7134[0]: found at 0000:00:0c.0, rev: 1, irq: 11, latency: 32, mmio: 0xcfffbc00

saa7134[0]: registered device vbi0
Note the "UNKNOWN/GENERIC" part on line 4.

lsmod doesn't show the DVB drivers as being installed either.

If I run "modprobe saa7134 oss=1 card=70" and "modprobe saa7134-dvb" from terminal, they execute fine, and lsmod picks up the correct information - the same is true for placing the two commands in /etc/rc.sysconfig, but neither of these methods correctly set up the necessary devices in /dev

Any pointers as to what could be going wrong? I'm stumped!

Kernel: 2.6.14-1.1656_FC4

Thanks
