Rova TV and Kernel headers?


I'm trying to get video capture working with my Nvidia 5800 VIVO and I'm not having much luck. I'm not sure where to go from here.
sh configure
Checking for configured kernel headers... not found
*** ERROR:
*** In order to build RivaTV you need a set of kernel headers properly
*** configured for the kernel you intend to use RivaTV with.

on your distro cd's there will be a package called "kernel-headers-2.4.27-21.rpm" or similar. install it.

# urpmi kernel-headers
Everything already installed


Can't I use urpmi?

Eh, you need the kernel SOURCE, not just the headers.

try

urpmi kernel-source

instead.

Yeah that worked.
I wish the VIVO would be seein in Linux as a video device. Hence I get this:
Creating video devices. mknod /dev/video0 c 81 0
chmod: cannot access `/dev/video0': No such file or directory
ERROR: /lib/modules/2.6.3-19mdkcustom/kernel does not exist!

I dunno... Maybe it won'r work.
