Techwell TW6800 8CH PCI DVR Driver


Is any one able to help, I have a techwell TW6800 dvr pci card and found some drivers on Git web site but the make file is for a debian system:

Does any one know how to amend the make file for a slackware system or how to installs the driver on slackware 14.1.

Thank you.

I'm getting the same error but on Fedora 20.

It looks like the driver may eventually (soon?) be included in the kernel, according to a post by Hans Verkuil on August 10th, 2014.

But I guess that will take some time to filter down to distros.
