ivtv drivers in SuSE 10.1


Hopefully this will be pretty simple. I went through the ivtv howto and ecountered the "Error messages about tveeprom_read and/or tveeprom_hauppauge_analog being unknown symbols with ivtv-0.5" that the troubleshooting section mentions. It says the solution is to:

cd ivtv/v4l-kernel
make distclean

but it doesn't say what directory to start from. My home dir and / don't have ivtv subdirs. Neither does the dir I unpacked the driver into. I used KDE's 'find files' tool to search for 'ivtv/v4l-kernel' but it just sat there. I just need to know what directory to be in.

As a side note, this seems like a fairly straightforward thing. I'm surprised the walkthrough fails to mention it.

Hav you considered using the stable release 6.3 made for the kernel you are running, rather then using the old unstable 0.5 version?

I am using the stable release. The troubleshooting section describes the error happening in version 0.5 and later.

I've determined that I placed the firmware in the wrong place. When I run

find /etc/ -name firmware.agent

I get nothing. The HOWTO says SuSE users should look in /sbin/udev.firmware.sh for the FIRMWARE_DIRS variable, but that file doesn't exist either.

The SuSE-specific portion of the HOWTO says to place the firmware in /usr/bin/hotplug/firmware/, but the directory doesn't exist. Will it work if I just run mkdir?

Nope. They're all in the right place. Still having the problem, though.

Try putting the firmware in /usr/lib/hotplug/firmware
