Cheers mates. Although I understand quite nada of what you're discussing I thought I chime in and give you an example of what I'm struggling with.

At 'make modules' I get loads of these:

CC [M] drivers/media/common/saa7146_i2c.o
drivers/media/common/saa7146_i2c.c: In function 'saa7146_i2c_adapter_prepare':
drivers/media/common/saa7146_i2c.c:410: error: 'I2C_HW_SAA7146' undeclared (first use in this function)
drivers/media/common/saa7146_i2c.c:410: error: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
drivers/media/common/saa7146_i2c.c:410: error: for each function it appears in.)
make[3]: *** [drivers/media/common/saa7146_i2c.o] Error 1
make[2]: *** [drivers/media/common] Error 2
make[1]: *** [drivers/media] Error 2
make: *** [drivers] Error 2

My problem is I need to install the Philips SAA713x type TV card, so I got to keep it in the xconfig.

Any ideas how to fix this?

Here's more errors:

drivers/media/video/saa7134/saa7134-cards.c:2185: error: array index in initializer not of integer type
drivers/media/video/saa7134/saa7134-cards.c:2185: error: (near initialization for 'saa7134_boards')
drivers/media/video/saa7134/saa7134-cards.c:2188: error: 'TUNER_PHILIPS_TD1316' undeclared here (not in a function)
drivers/media/video/saa7134/saa7134-cards.c:2189: error: unknown field 'radio_type' specified in initializer
drivers/media/video/saa7134/saa7134-cards.c:2190: error: unknown field 'tuner_addr' specified in initializer

drivers/media/video/saa7134/saa7134-cards.c:2209: error: 'SAA7134_BOARD_VIDEOMATE_DVBT_300' undeclared here (not in a f

there were hundreds of these during my last attempt!)

Or this one at 'make modules_install':

WARNING: /lib/modules/2.6.12-12mdkcustom/kernel/3rdparty/mod_marvel/mga_core.ko needs unknown symbol matroxfb_register_driver
WARNING: /lib/modules/2.6.12-12mdkcustom/kernel/3rdparty/mod_marvel/mga_core.ko needs unknown symbol matroxfb_unregister_driver
make: *** [_modinst_post] Error 1

All I need to do is just install one little TV card...
