– kernel panics when bttv compiled in

Registration is quick, simple and absolutely free. There is a list with the ID’s in bttv-cards. I have that built as a module and V4l information built in to the kernel. The bttv driver is in the linux kernel. The driver uses some Makefile magic to compile the modules with your kernel’s configuration wrt.

Just patch the kernel with the patch in http: Linux Power User Comiple. Open Source Consulting Domain Registration.

[linux-dvb] dvb-bttv compile issues

If you get video but no sound bhtv very likely specified the wrong or no card type. I cant find any information on how to enable support for it.


You were absolutely correct. Old driver versions used to have a heuristic which could identify some btbased cards.

Compile bttv If you are compiling the kernel version, just say ‘m’ if you are asked for bttv. Maybe it’s in the x windows version of the configuration tool.

Don’t send me mails with images attached unless I ask you to do so. Then compile it as a module or in the kernel as you like. Genone Retired Dev Joined: Having a problem logging in?

If you’re still having trouble after recompiling your kernel with all the options properly selected and you use lilo as your bootloader, I suggest you try running lilo by typing lilo at the prompt after you’ve copied your newly compiled kernel to your boot directory too so it’ll point to your new custom kernel when your computer reboots next time.
