Question kwintv / antialiasing RENDER problem

After fiddling with one of the .cpp files (missing stdlib.h). I've managed to compile and install kwintv

When I run ./kwintv the error I get is

Xlib: extension "RENDER" missing on display ":0.0"
Warning: main: can't load program-file /root/.kwintvrc/!
can't open /dev/video: Is a directory

I think the "RENDER" error has something to do with kwintv trying to use special fonts that my system doesn't support. What about /dev/video? Well, yes, everything is directory or file in Linux.

What can I do??? If there a better/more reliable video program? I urgently need to capture some video onto my laptop.

I'm running
RH 7.1 - kernel 2.4.2-2
Qt: 2.3.0
KDE: 2.1.1
KwinTV: 0.8.5

Wink 2 good news, 1 bad one

First of all, linux is not only made with files and directories, but has multiple cartacter devices, links... and its getting OT.

the /dev/video is normaly linked (Ooh a nother media!) too /dev/video(0|1|2|3|4|...). That caracter device is created by :

Linux configuration Utils:
Multimedia devices --->
<M> Video suppport for linux

And fund your driver in there.

So the 2 good news :

1/0-- Good news :

1/1: You can try to "modprobe -a" and "insmod videodev" then insmod the driver for your vid.card
If that fails, goto.goodnews#2
1/2: Learn how to recompile the kernel

2/0-- Bad news,

2/1 : Im going into hybernation for the summer too mutch sun burning my skin

Wish you fun in compiling farm.
