Modprobe option issue
 
Hey,
I'm running Ubuntu 6.02 on a P4 2GHz system.

I just installed a PVR WinTV 150 card using the following how to: http://hyams.webhop.net/mythtv/myth_ubuntu.html

I was wondering how I would add the option "tuner=50" option to the boot time mod probe commands (aliases, i guess). I knew how to do this with FC3 once upon a time, but no idea how to do it on a Ubuntu system. Here are the commands I issue to get my card operating.

"rmmod ivtv

modprobe ivtv tuner=50"

How do I get my system to do these automatically in the aliases file?

Thanks,
-Rob

got it
 
I was just confussed by the way ubuntu handled modprobe options. I solved the problem by just placing an option tuner=50 line in the aliases.conf file.

You can include these options in /etc/modprobe.conf. You may even have commented examples for your module. Also, if you have the kernel-docs installed look for a text file which may have information on all options.

snippit from my modprobe.conf:
Code:

# options bttv    pll=1 radio=0 card=0
# options tuner  type=0
# options msp3400 once=1 simple=1

# install bttv /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install bttv && { /sbin/modprobe -k tuner; /sbin/modprobe -k msp3400; }

Is ivtv a modprobe alias?

Glad to see you have it resolved.
