Unhappy TV crads...Mke me crazy !


I've Mandrake Power Pack 10.0 and i'm satisfied except for a problem.

I cannot make my Flyvideo 2000 tv cards works. It use the SAA713x chip that has native support with kernel 2.6.3-7mdk.

If i do a lspci, the system recognised the card:

00:00.0 Host bridge: ALi Corporation M1647 Northbridge [MAGiK 1 / MobileMAGiK 1] (rev 04)
00:01.0 PCI bridge: ALi Corporation PCI to AGP Controller
00:02.0 USB Controller: ALi Corporation USB 1.1 Controller (rev 03)
00:04.0 IDE interface: ALi Corporation M5229 IDE (rev c4)
00:06.0 USB Controller: ALi Corporation USB 1.1 Controller (rev 03)
00:07.0 ISA bridge: ALi Corporation M1533 PCI to ISA Bridge [Aladdin IV]
00:09.0 Multimedia controller: Philips Semiconductors SAA7130 Video Broadcast Decoder (rev 01)
00:0a.0 Multimedia audio controller: Creative Labs SB Audigy (rev 04)
00:0a.1 Input device controller: Creative Labs SB Audigy MIDI/Game port (rev 04)
00:0a.2 FireWire (IEEE 1394): Creative Labs SB Audigy FireWire Port (rev 04)
00:0c.0 Communication controller: Conexant HSF 56k HSFi Modem (rev 01)
00:0d.0 FireWire (IEEE 1394): Lucent Microelectronics FW323 (rev 04)
00:11.0 Bridge: ALi Corporation M7101 PMU
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV17 [GeForce4 MX 440] (rev a3)

But if i try a modprobe saa7134, i have this message:

[root@localhost maurizio]# modprobe saa7134
FATAL: Error inserting saa7134 (/lib/modules/2.6.3-7mdk/kernel/drivers/media/video/saa7134/saa7134.ko.gz): Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)

The dmesg return this:
Linux video capture interface: v1.00
saa7134: Unknown parameter `radio'

This card is cabable to tune fm radio but i receive the error message above.
During installation, i've manually indicates to the system, the correct parameters for this card:

Card type :Lifeview Flyvideo 2000
Tuner: Philips PAL BG_DK.

I've also used 2.4.25 kernel and the card works for a while but after few seconds, the system hangs.

In /ect/modules/conf, i've setup these parameters:
alias char-major-81-0 saa7134
options saa7134 radio=0 card=3 tuner=5 gbuffers=4

Where are my mistakes ? :-)
