Problems installing HD3000 Drivers

I'm installing the 1.4 driver on a Slackware 10.0 installation running kernel 2.6.7. I've compiled and insmodded the driver. the /dev entries exist and have 0666 permissions. /dev/dtv is a symlink to /dev/dtv0

When I go to test the installation with dtvsignal /dev/dtv, I get the error message
No such device - couldnt open file /dev/dtv

There are no error messages in dmesg.

Suggestions?

I don't know why I wasn't logged in above.

I've since tried with the 1.5 and 1.6 drivers with the same result.

I did coax an error message out of it with version 1.6.

Dmesg has:
bttv: driver version 0.9.15 loaded
bttv: using 8 buffers with 2080k (520 pages) each for capture
bttv: Host bridge needs ETBF enabled.

From searching this forum for ETBF, it seems that a PCI 2.1 motherboard (as my ancient mb is) will not work with this card. Big bummer.

Can someone confirm my sleuthing so far?

No one has seen fit to confirm my situation.

Today I installed a new motherboard, recompiled the 1.6 drivers and installed. I still get the same error:

murphy@parousia:~$ dtvsignal /dev/dtv 12
main: argc 3 argv[1] /dev/dtv
No such device - couldnt open file /dev/dtv
murphy@parousia:~$ ls -l /dev/dtv*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 9 2005-02-22 05:47 /dev/dtv -> /dev/dtv0
crw-rw-rw- 1 root root 81, 32 2005-02-22 05:47 /dev/dtv0
crw-rw-rw- 1 root root 81, 33 2005-02-22 05:47 /dev/dtv1
crw-rw-rw- 1 root root 81, 34 2005-02-22 05:47 /dev/dtv2
crw-rw-rw- 1 root root 81, 35 2005-02-22 05:47 /dev/dtv3

from dmesg
bttv: driver version 0.9.14 loaded
bttv: using 8 buffers with 2080k (520 pages) each for capture

I WOULD APPRECIATE HEARING FROM SOMEONE.

Can you post the output from dmesg? starting from the "Video for Linux" line down to the last line after install. That will be easier to see what is actually happening. It is most likely that older modules are loading instead of the new ones or something to that effect. Use the 1.6 driver when you generate the dmesg output.

Thanks,

Rusty

I did eventually get it working. I did a make clean and recompiled/reinstalled. Right now I'm trying to figure out how to get sound. Am I supposed to plud the supplied 1/4 phono plug into the card and then into the line in port of the sound card?

Getting back to this forum is hard. Something is wrong, I get a SQL error message when trying to enter the HD-2000 drivers forum. I managed to get here to reply by following a ling to a message and using the previous thread link to get in.


here's the error message:

For anyone else that encounters this problem, I discovered that my device ended up at /dev/dtv3, probably because I had messed about alot with the drivers.

Assuming the module loads correctly, this command indicates which /dev/dtv* device the module was using:
Code:
grep 'cx88: registered' /var/log/messages
