/dev/dvb is gone at startup, how to make it read only ?

Hi All,

Finally got my Nova-t USB working !

But, every time I restart Linux, my /dev/dvb folder is gone and is no where to be seen, does anyone know why ?

I'd like to make it read-only, how do I go about doing that ?

Many Thanks,

here ...

come in to shell ...

open folder
and mkdir dvb

after it write this command
mount /dev/dvb mnt/dvb

after it open
and fill the last row with your new device if you want to do it read only so write "owner" in the right place
good luck

hope i help ...

Hey, can you tell me how you managed to get it working? I'm running Mandrake 10 and I have the PCI-version and while I can get the /dev/dvb/adapter* appear (after loading all the modules and restarting devfsd), all the programs say that /dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0 does not exist or can't be opened, even if it DOES exist and I have the correct permissions set.

What is wrong??? Everything seems to work so well with the hardware, yet no program can use the card. Getting so frustrated with this.
