Hi Anthony,

If it's any help, here's what works for me:

  cvs -d :pserver:anonymous at cvs.linuxtv.org:/cvs/linuxtv login
  cvs -z3 -d :pserver:anonymous at cvs.linuxtv.org:/cvs/linuxtv co -P 
dvb-kernel
  cvs -d :pserver:anonymous at cvs.linuxtv.org:/cvs/video4linux login
  cvs -d :pserver:anonymous at cvs.linuxtv.org:/cvs/video4linux co -P 
video4linux
  cd video4linux/
  sh scripts/merge-trees.sh
  make
  make install

The error messages you linked to are just install errors saying "can't 
install this module because it didn't compile correctly". It would be 
helpful if you could post any errors seen in the 'make' stage. Also, what 
distro and architecture are you running? (I found I had serious problems 
thanks to some 'quirks' in FC4...)

Regards,

Andy

Hi

I am back to attempted to get my PVR working after a fair break and am once 
again having difficulty.  My problem is the saa7134-dvb.ko does not seem to 
be being compiled (make install output below)

I have kernel 2.6.11.  I have removed the "undef HAVE_TDA1004X" from 
compat.h (for kernels < 2.6.13) and this makes no difference.  I have 
compiled by each of the following methods and get the same outcome - have I 
done this correctly?:

First try
    followed the instructions on http://www.linuxtv.org/cvs.php from my DVB 
directory which contains my video4linux and dvb-kernel directories
    ran ./scripts/merge-trees.sh from video4linux
    make
    make install
Second try
    wiped out the contents of my DVB directory entirely
    used the cvs to load the video4linux and dvb-kernel directories
    ran ./scripts/merge-trees.sh from video4linux
    make
    make install
Third try
    wiped out the contents of my DVB directory entirely
    got latest stable release of video4linux from 
http://www.linuxtv.org/downloads/video4linux/video4linux-20050801.tar.gz
    updated video4linux from cvs
    used the cvs to load the dvb-kernel directory
    ran ./scripts/merge-trees.sh from video4linux
    make
    make install

After all of the above the saa7134 drivers load fine with a modprobe saa7134 
and the card type is recognised and this all seems fine (Compro Videomate 
DVB-T300 [card=70,autodetected]) but the saa7134-dvb modules does not exist 
to be loaded.

The problem I think is shown by my video4linux make install output as shown 
here

Any ideas you might have would be great.  I actually had all this working a 
while ago and now I'm back at square 1.

thanks in advance

Anthony
