Hey, just noticed that v4l-dvb FC5 drivers tarball just arrived on the downloads page! Am installing it now on a fresh install (nuke it from orbit, it's the only way to be sure...). Will report status.

Very Happy

Don't forget to the the "yum upgrade"

OK, notice that dvb_shutdown_timeout = 5 in the source. I think I can override it with an insmod argument, but I'm going to just change the default for that static in the source code (in v4l/dvb_frontend.c).

You need to install kernel-devel to get the header files to compile.
% yum install kernel-devel

Since I have a Hauppauge PVR-150 also, I've installed ivtv first just to get the utilities like ivtv-detect.
% yum install ivtv

% make all
% make install

% shutdown -r now
(rebooting with fingers crossed)

Hmmm... I'm getting a BUG: modprobe/934, lock held at task exit time!
