bttv and intel i845

Hi to all,

I've recently got a new low-cost intel board with the i845 chipset and I'm trying to use it to capture video. I'm using an avermedia capture card with bt878 chip which takes 5 minutes to initialize the bttv module. I added the i2c-algo-bit option that the bttv doc describes to shorten this waiting but it's still the same. I used the same card in other system ( a via c3 ) in which this option made the module load in just 1 or 2 seconds, so I don't know how to do it in this new board.

Any suggestion?

Sorry for the inconvenience, I just had a corrupt modules.conf.
The i2c-algo-bit trick is now correctly working.
