installing bttv & v4l


Hello,

I have a problem on installing the bttv and v4l on my RH enterprise linux
workstaion whose kernel is v2.4.21.

I've compiled the kernel and modules including bttv, v4l, and i2c that are come with installation CDs, and I edited /etc/modules.conf file as following:

alias char-major-89 i2c-dev
options ...
alias char-major-81 videodev
alias char-major-81-0 bttv
options ...

And then, I rebooted my new linux but I couldn't get the bttv.
Why ? Anybody can tell me what I should've done ?

Thanks,
JL

is the bttv driver loaded at all? try "dmesg | grep bttv" to see what it said.

I don't see any message related to bttv.

Again, what I did is
make menuconfig
make dep
make clean
make bzImage
make modules
make modules_install
make install

and then I edited /etc/modules.conf file to add i2c, v4l and bttv.

I totally lost....
