TV card Problem


I have the HVR-2200 TV card, which works great in windows, And I have found the linux driver. http://www.kernellabs.com/blog/?page_id=17
What I cant do is figure out how to install the driver/firmware information in Ubuntu 10.04.
Any help would be appreciated!!!
Thanks!

Instructions are provided at their wiki: http://linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/Ha...Making_it_Work

Read through it first and identify the parts relevant to Ubuntu before implementing.

Tried the instructions at the wiki site. They don't work.
Says no such location after the first set of terminal attempts

Open your terminal then copy and paste (or type) the following pressing enter after each line:

Code:
wget http://www.steventoth.net/linux/hvr22xx/22xxdrv_27086.zip
Code:
wget http://www.steventoth.net/linux/hvr22xx/HVR-12x0-14x0-17x0_1_25_25271_WHQL.zip
Code:
wget http://www.steventoth.net/linux/hvr22xx/extract.sh
Code:
sh extract.sh
Code:
sudo cp *fw /lib/firmware
Code:
sudo apt-get install mercurial libncurses5-dev
Code:
hg clone http://kernellabs.com/hg/saa7164-stable/
Code:
cd saa7164-stable
The next line doesn't work for me as I don't have this card, but it might work for you, if it doesn't just carry on.

Code:
perl -p -i -e 's/FIREDTV=m/FIREDTV=n/' v4l/.config
Code:
make menuconfig
(choose your options when menu appears) If you are not sure what to choose, just accept the defaults.
Code:
make
Code:
sudo make install
Providing there are no last minute errors you should now reboot your system.
