Have pretty much got my new gentoo box up and running, however, am having trouble with the dvb.
using kernel 2.6.11 from recent gentoo sources (on amd64), and using udev
Firstly, the device nodes were not being created, (first noticed by fact that kaffeine did not bring up the dvb tab). there is no /dev/dvb/
have checked google, and found reference to udev rules and a dvb.sh script. These rules, and the script are both already in place.
Now, I think the issue here is that the tda8083 module is being used, when my hardware should be using the tda1004x (I know, because this is the same card as I used in my old 32bit athlon system - beside which tda8083 is dvb-s, and I have a dvb-t (winTV nova-T from easter 2004)). I never selected to compile the 8083 module, make menuconfig seemed to automatically do this when I selected the budget modules.
It certainly creates the device nodes, but still leaves the problem of the wrong modules being loaded.
(the scan utility says that /dev/dvb/adaptor0/frontend0 there is no such device. Doesn't complain about the demux though).
am going to try 2.6.12 kernel with fingers crossed, but have seen atleast one site that has it working with 2.6.11, so don't see why that should be an issue.
