I have a system running Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and the 5500 card isn't being recognized. When I do a dmesg it doesn't show up, but when I run lspci, it shows up with the following.

02:0b.0 Multimedia video controller: Conexant CX23880/1/2/3 PCI Video and Audio Decoder (rev 05)
02:0b.1 Multimedia controller: Conexant CX23880/1/2/3 PCI Video and Audio Decoder [Audio Port] (rev 05)
02:0b.2 Multimedia controller: Conexant CX23880/1/2/3 PCI Video and Audio Decoder [MPEG Port] (rev 05)
02:0b.4 Multimedia controller: Conexant CX23880/1/2/3 PCI Video and Audio Decoder [IR Port] (rev 05)

The kernel from Red Hat is 2.6.18-53.1.14. I am not sure if I need to recompile the kernel or load firmware. Let me know if you have suggestions.

Although I haven't used RHEL 5, I do use CentOS 5. It is a clone of RHEL, with the Red Hat labeling removed. I found that it did not have built in support for the HD3000, so I ended up downloading the kernel sources and re-compiling.

I have since found out that CentOS has a repository with kernels that have more hardware support compiled into it. I have not used it, because my re-compiled kernel works fine. I believe that you can use the CentOS repository for RHEL.

You would want the CentOSPlus repository.
