Help me with the DXR3 and Hollywood+ Driver


I can't make my Dxr3 card run.
I try to install the hollywood/Dxr3 drivers but i get errors everytime.

Please, don't tell me to go to the home page of the dxr3 driver project. I have read the howto but i can't make the card run.

Just if someone has the card running please tell me how you did it.

thanks

in the modules dir:
- i changed the kernel path on the makefile to /usr/src/linux
- make (no problems)
- when i do 'make install ' i get this output:

What version of the em8300 drivers are you trying to install?
I have a Hollywood+ and remote here, both working fine. I can watch DVD's on my tv with 5.1 sound (SB Live 5.1) and control it with the remote (all I need now is a beer fridge next to the lounge:-)

Ok, tell me exactly what steps you've done so far and details on your hardware.

Ok,
I'm trying to install the 0.13 version of the dxr3/h+ driver (http://dxr3.sf.net)
After reading the Howto on the project site I went to the installation dir; i chdir to em8300/modules and run "make" (no errors).
After that I run "make install" and i get these errors:

depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in /lib/modules/2.4.18/kernel/drivers/video/adv717x.o
depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in /lib/modules/2.4.18/kernel/drivers/video/bt865.o
depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in /lib/modules/2.4.18/kernel/drivers/video/em8300.o

Looking at the FAQS, about this trouble (unresolved symbols) the developers recommends to verify that the Kernel source you are compiling against must match your running kernel. I checked that and its fine.

At this point i don't know how to keep trying.

I will appreciate some help..
Thanks

Ok, with the latest version I just did "./configure" "make" and "make install" in the top level src dir. Do a "make clean" in the modules dir and then "cd ../" "./configure" etc...

OK, but the ./configure/make/make install in the top level src dir is to install the dxr3libs.
I need to make the modules, and that should be done in the modules dir...

Not just the dxr3libs with this release, they seem to have done a major upgrade on the install method without updating the instructions.

Are you shure? I can do configure/make/make install on top level dir with no errors, but then i still can't using the dxr3 card.

Yes, well thats because there are a few other things to do before you can use it.
1) You need to make the /dev nodes, use /modules/devices.sh or make them by hand with the following,
Code:
mknod /dev/em8300-0    c 121 0
mknod /dev/em8300_mv-0 c 121 1
mknod /dev/em8300_ma-0 c 121 2
mknod /dev/em8300_sp-0 c 121 3

chmod 666 /dev/em8300*
If you use devfs then you need to follow the devfs instructions in /modules/INSTALL
Now you need to load the modules,"modprobe em8300" followed by "em8300setup", look at /modules/README-modules.conf and README-modoptions.
Once all that is done you need to compile a player with support for the dxr3, either mplayer or xine will do, I use both.
