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.
