Try compiling the source package directly, this is what I did with my
miropctv (bt848) card.
Works grand - except that it bring down the x-server from time to time (say
overnight) startx again and your sorted.
Think its a bug with x-free 4 and the xawtv app 3.15? , it was about two
years ago that I configured it, and the problem appeared when I upgraded
from xfree 3.3.6 to 4.01 - this is my only reasoning!
You are right to use it as a module (says so in the readme) but I have it
statically and works grand that way.
I bought myself a TV card a while ago and I finally got a chance to install
it. I compiled a kernel with modular support for the card and that all seems
to work fine in that I can load the modules with no error. However, the
object of the excercise is to watch TV but I can't install xawtv :
niall at bagend:/cdrom >sudo rpm -Uvh ./suse/xap1/xawtv.rpm
error: failed dependencies:
libXxf86dga.so.1 is needed by xawtv-3.17-13
libXxf86vm.so.1 is needed by xawtv-3.17-13
Don't know about the libs... sorry.
