Trying to turn my nice shiny new Dell into a MythTV box running on Kubuntu
Being driven demented by the setting up of the ivtv driver.
The module compiles without errors (after a wee bit of tweaking), but won't
load no matter what I try.
and get the following error:
FATAL: Error inserting ivtv (/lib/modules/2.6.15-26-386/ivtv/ivtv.ko):
dmesg gives the following message:
ivtv: version magic '2.6.15-26-386 preempt 486 gcc-4.0' should
be '2.6.15-26-386 preempt 486 gcc-4.0'
I think it's the two spaces between the '386' and 'preempt' before
the 'should' that is causing the problem, but alas, I have no idea of how to
I've tried adding a space at the end of EXTRAVERSION in the /usr/src/linux
Makefile, but that just causes 'make install' on compiling the module to
fail. I'm more or less completely ignorant concerning the whole compilation
Any pointers greatly appreciated.
