Hello everyone. I know my way very well around Windows 98 and I recently installed Red Hat 7.2 as a second O.S. in my computer in a seperate partition. I beleave it is time to loose my addiction on B. Gates products. No problems there, everything went well. However I realy need help on this subject - I have read HowTo┤s, searched the net, gone to the public library at my home town,etc, etc...
and nothing .
I have a Pinnacle PCTV card that works well in Windows 98, but I would like to make it work in Linux as well.
I instaled xawtv and when I try to "activate" it system says:
v4l: open/dev/video0: no such device
no video grabber device available
However in ( KDE )Controle Center\Information\PCI there is this info:
-Multimedia video controler: Brooktree Corporation Bt878 ( rev 17 )
Linux knows something is there but doesn┤t know what it is for? How can I "configure" my Tv Card? I beleave that quite a few people must have this problem but just don┤t bother or give up trying to solve it and keep using Windows. I realy have tried to get awnsers in HowTo┤s and Tv grabber instructions programs for Linux like xawtv, bttv, kwintv and zapping.
Yes I must be a Linux DUMMY but still I would realy love to get some help on this subject.
