Just recently I decided to set up my ati ve wonder card on RH9, I noticed that I have xawtv. I went to run xawtv and realized that it was just giving me a blank screen with ???, actually sending snow all over my screen, which I think is from overlay. I know that when I run xawtv it pops up but no go, so can some point me in the right direction on what do I do next. Sorry for being such a NoOb.

I did not do anything to xawtv, it was already pre-installed on RH, i think.

ati and xawtv are not compatible, go to (not a bad site, the actual xawtv site) and see if you can link to the gatos project.

also you need to load the modules for the tv card, many use bttv module, there are others though, if you compile your own kernel enable the v4l stuff.
