problem with bttv and pinnacle tv tuner card


Hello,

I am trying to get my PInncale emptyv working on my Gentoo 2.6.5 box.

I have enabled all options in the kernel for i2c, video4linux and have added bttv as a module.

When I type modprobe bttv I get the following error:

FATAL: Error inserting bttv (/lib/modules/2.6.5-gentoo-r1/v4l2/bttv.ko): Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)

When I check dmesg I can see the following relevant lines:

bttv: Unknown symbol i2c_bit_add_bus
bttv: Unknown symbol i2c_master_recv
bttv: Unknown symbol i2c_del_adapter
bttv: Unknown symbol i2c_bit_del_bus
bttv: Unknown symbol video_unregister_device
bttv: Unknown symbol video_device_alloc
bttv: Unknown symbol video_register_device
bttv: Unknown symbol i2c_clients_command
bttv: Unknown symbol i2c_add_adapter
bttv: Unknown symbol video_usercopy
bttv: Unknown symbol video_device_release
bttv: Unknown symbol i2c_master_send


I dont get it. I have enabled all i2c features as built into the kernel and they seem to be the cause of the error still.

Can anyone help me?

Hi!

I had the same troubles, I installed a new kernel and removed all stuff from the old. Then it worked.

I have written a small help page on how to get the Pinnacle Systems 878 Tv card working with linux 2.6.7 (aimed at gentoo, but might be handy for other distros too)
