Hey - who out there has a 5500 working on a openSUSE 10.2 install?? I have been having fits. My 10.2 install recognized the card as a cx88_blackbird and I read that this is not the right driver, even though it seems to have responded to dtvsignal commands ok. I was stoked when I rebooted after installing the card, it seemed to have all the necessary drivers loaded, but alas...
-I could not get the driver from the download to compile / install; I got the path not found error about 30 lines into the script. I found the 2.6.17-version for FC5 on the pcHDTV website, and it compiled ok, but on loading that ended up in giving me a ton of 'symbol not found' errors, so the driver is not compatible with the kernel??.....

Can someone running SUSE 10.1/2 post their lsmod output, their kernel config, and where they got their v4l driver package?

I noticed that there are bunch of cx88xx kernel modules in Yast, and I played with them a bit, but none of them seem to recognize the card as an HD5500. At this point, I don't know if monkeying around trying get drivers working is the best approach, or if just updating my kernel 2.6.20 and building the driver support into my kernel. Has anyone been on 10.2 / 10.2 and done the kernel upgrade (and providing support for the HD5500 builtin) successfully? Here is my lsmod now....

Here is some other info: - Here is what I am getting on a dtvsignal:

yogi:/home/jim # dtvsignal 33
using '/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0' and '/dev/dvb/adapter0/demux0'
ERROR: failed opening '/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0' (No such file or directory)
dtvsignal ver 1.0.4 - by Jack Kelliher (c) 2002,2005,2006
channel = 33 freq = 587000000Hz
30db 0% 25% 50% 75% 100%
Signal: | . : . | ._____:_____._____|
Signal: 059 ============================
Signal: 059 ============================

I get this "59" on any / every channel - even bogus ones.

When the blackbird driver was loading, it was not giving the error "failed opening '/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0'". Is there an order the drivers need to load in?

This isn't exactly what you want, but I have SuSE 10.1 on my laptop. I downloaded the source for kernel 2.6.19.2 and compiled it. I was trying to enable the new wireless driver bcm43xx. I couldn't figure out how, but the kernel runs just fine. I copied the config file from the old kernel and then modified it. (I now know how to enable the bcm43xx driver, but I don't want to mess with something that works.)

I also was running my HD-3000 on SuSE 10.1. I don't remember everthing I did, but I did have to add the module to the sysconfig section in Yast. There is a section called modules_loaded_on_boot. Also, I had to add the cards firmware to the firmware folder. I don't know if the HD-5500 needs firware loaded.

I just installed SuSE 10.2 on a computer (no HD card). When I try to compile a newer kernel on it, I get a bunch of errors. Some were cleared by installing more programs, but I still can't even start up the config file (make menuconfig or make xconfig).

To try out how to config your kernel, cd to /usr/src and the folder that has your kernel source. type in make menuconfig or make xconfig. They both do the same thing. You may want to first save a config file for the existing kernel configuration. This can be used when you get the newer kernel sources.

My SuSE 10.2 installation didn't originally have the sources installed. I think that it is best to install all of the developement programs. I didn't do that this time, and this may be the source of my problems.
