I have a Fedora 4 core upgraded to Fedora 5. I am having trouble seeing if the driver is installed. Here is the output of my screen when I am checking for the driver. It looks like it adds the modules, but I am unsure whyit's not working.

Is it because I was using an upgrade from Fedora Core 4? Any help would be much appreciated. I am so close to getting this sytem working.

Thanks,
hehaha

I forgot to mention that I am using a HD-5500 card. It just seems like the drivers aren't making the /dev/xxx pointer that I need to access the video capture card.

Thanks for the help in advance!

try posting the output of
Code:
 > demsg | tail -n 50
after you have done all the modprobe stuff instead of a grep for cx88.

Here is the output. Does that help you figure out what the problem may be?

Make sure your card is properly seated in the slot (with power off). Then once your box boots do the following and post the output here:
Code:
> /sbin/lspci
The output should show a multimedia controller from connexant with four different devices (Audio, Video,IR, etc)
Code:
> /sbin/lsmod | grep cx88

The output should tell you if any cx88 modules have already been loaded. If you see cx88_blackbird then remove it using /sbin/modprobe -r cx88-blackbird
Code:
> /sbin/modprobe -rv cx88-dvb cx88-alsa cx8800
> /sbin/modprobe -v cx8800
> /sbin/modprobe -v cx88-alsa
> /sbin/modprobe -v cx88-dvb
> dmesg | tail -n 50


HTH,

Rusty

Rusty,

You were right about seating the card! I opened up my computer and the card was not fully engaged into the motherboard. I pushed it in and "voila," it showed up in Linux!

All the frustration from a mechanical issue...


Thanks for the all of the help!
