Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I'ev download cx18 drivers , make(no error), makeinstall(no error),makemenuconfig (this one write not for this kernel),make unload, and finally modprobe cx16 (nothing append with this command except a line feed)
at boot time it try for a minute cx18 and then bad exit 10
kmplayer and others should do it, but I'm not experienced with dvb.
You'll probably have to check the Mandriva errata and other docs to find out....
Or someone here may know.
btw, if the module does not load at system startup, you can add the module name to /etc/modprobe.preload (as root to save)
# /etc/modprobe.preload: kernel modules to load at boot time.
# This file should contain the names of kernel modules that are
# to be loaded at boot time, one per line. Comments begin with
# a `#', and everything on the line after them are ignored.
# this file is for module-init-tools (kernel 2.5 and above) ONLY
# for old kernel use /etc/modules
evdev #usb mouse
cx18 # add this line
#leave and empty line at the end to signify eof.
you might also consider v4l2 (video for linux 2), it's newer and may suit your hardware better.
LOL I actually have this same card and according to alot of online sources it is supposed to work and it "kinda" does. NOTE: I have yet to be able to actually watch live tv on this card but it does scan channels correctly and it does setup correctly in mythtv. The distro that I used was ubuntu 9. I really think that there are several of these cards that are just configured differently and the ones people have been able to get working correctly is a specific kind. I have used diffrent programs to try and watch live tv but all i ever get is nothing or access denied errors from the /dev/video0 device.
I wish I could be more help to you and I am interested to see if you actually can get it working.
There is a bizarre thing in the Mandriva control center--->detect hardware
it detect my card CX23418 Single-Chip MPEG-2 Encoder with Integrated Analog Video/Broadcast Audio Decoder
class Multimedia video controller
BUT if i try start configuration tool the answeris : NO TV card was detect in the computer!!
