IVTV Init Cannot Open Firmware


OK, here is one for the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" files. I had ivtv 0.4.3 working reasonably well in Ubuntu 5.10 64-bit, but I had to redo my installation and I installed Ubuntu 6.06 and ivtv 0.4.4. Now, although I've done what I believe to be the right steps, the firmware files are not being seen. Maybe there is a typo? Wrong directory? Any help would be appreciated.

Here is my /usr/lib/hotplug/firmware directory:

drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 4096 2006-04-30 22:35 ..
-r--r--r-- 1 root root 14264 2006-05-01 00:11 v4l-cx25840.fw
-r--r--r-- 1 root root 376836 2006-05-01 00:11 v4l-cx2341-enc.fw
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 262144 2006-05-01 00:12 v4l-cx2341x-dec.fw
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 155648 2006-05-01 00:15 v4l-cx2341x-init.mpg
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 2006-05-01 00:15 .

Here is my ivtv output from dmesg:

One of your firmware files has an incorrect name, rename it and it should all be fine.

v4l-cx2341-enc.fw

should be

v4l-cx2341x-enc.fw

Hi,

Thanks for responding.

Renamed the file depmod, modprobe, dmesg, no difference.
