IVTV module failing while compiling from Mandriva urpmi

Hello, I'm receiving an error in the compilation of the IVTV module when running "urpmi dkms-ivtv-stable." It fails with
src=/usr/src/-/ ; make......(bad exit status: 2)

Error! Bad return status for module build on kernel: 2.6.12-13mdk (i586)
Consult the make.log in the build directory
/var/lib/dkms/ivtv/0.2.0-rc3k_1mdk/build/ for more information.

Error! Could not locate ivtv.ko.gz for module ivtv in the DKMS tree.
You must run a dkms build for kernel 2.6.12-13mdk (i586) first.
error: %post(dkms-ivtv-stable-0.2.0-rc3k_1mdk.i586) scriptlet failed, exit status 4
The make.log ends with the following:
  CC [M]  /var/lib/dkms/ivtv/0.2.0-rc3k_1mdk/build/ivtv-driver.o
/var/lib/dkms/ivtv/0.2.0-rc3k_1mdk/build/ivtv-driver.c:454:67: error: macro "create_workqueue" passed 2 arguments, but takes just 1

make[1]: *** [_module_/var/lib/dkms/ivtv/0.2.0-rc3k_1mdk/build] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/'
make: *** [all] Error 2
I've tried multiple kernel versions, compiling ivtv from source, all fail in some manner. Any suggestions?

ivtv 0.2.0 is very old!
I believe that for the 2.6.12 kernel (which you have) you should be using ivtv 0.4.x, and for more recent kernels, you need to use ivtv 0.6.x
Google for "ivtv mailing list archive" for more information on the ivtv module
