Installing ivtv on CentOS 5


I'm trying to install ivtv on a new CentOS 5 system. When I do a uname -r I get 2.6.18-53.1.14.el5.

I thought that picking the comparable versions of the various ivtv files would work but that's not the case. Yumex gives me lots of red error messages.

Do I have to uninstall this version of the kernel and fall back to an earlier version? Can someone tell me how to proceed?

Thanks for the help.

I got ivtv working on that centos version recently and I can't remember what I had to install.
Try: lirc-devices.noarch and gcc-c++.i386

I installed those in the process but I cant remember which one was the answer.

That seemed to help with most of the error messages but I'm still getting:

Missing Dependency: /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.18-8.el5 is needed by package ivtv-kmdl-2.6.18-8.el5

If that's an old kernel, I can't find it in the repositories. I do have the ATRPMS stable and testing in the repo list but still no luck. Any suggestions?

Thanks again for the help.

try installing from latest on ivtv website, not the rpm which i am guessing you are trying.
