I have a Avertv radio card and its currently not working
I found this thread on these forums and it tells me to modprobe my kernel
with this patch
The patch however is in cvs and I have no idea how to use modprobe or how to use the stuff on that webpage

My card has a Philips Semiconductors SAA713X Audio+video broadcast decoder
the driver the kernel is using is ssaa7134

Can anyone help me?
Step by step would be nice
Thank you

I made that post you are talking about.

I cant give you a full description of what I have done, but I think i show you some directions where to look for.

Ok, the solution I found for myself was to apply a patch to a kernel module - saa7134.

By the way, a kernel patch is a source code modication. Applying a patch evolves to unix commands, diff and patch.

So, what I did was:
* download my kernel source code from www. kernel. org (if you dont know what kernel are you running, try the command 'uname -r')
* apply the patch
* compile the kernel or at least the module

I think you can follow any kernel compiling and/or patching howto.

Feel free to ask or make a comment.
