For weeks I've been trying to get my gl861-based Megasky to work. With
no luck at all unfortunately.
Right now I'm on a Ubuntu 6.10 (x86-server) and I'm located in Sweden.
I've tried both freshly compiled 22.214.171.124 and 126.96.36.199 kernels with the
~mkrufky/megasky repository. For some reason it won't compile because
of a lacking config.h file in the newer kernels. Anyway that was
"solved" using a dummy one.
It all seem good when looking in dmesg, modules get loaded and
dvb-devices are created. However, when trying to scan for channels it
doesn't seem to find anything, it says it can't lock.
Then I found a message from Antti Palosaari about a patch for the
QT1010-tuner. I applied the patch to the megasky-directory and
recompiled. Again it compiled and I installed the new modules and
rebooted. This time dmesg revealed the foolowing:
[ 23.465673] dvb-usb: found a 'MSI Mega Sky 55801 DVB-T USB2.0' in
[ 23.465726] dvb-usb: will pass the complete MPEG2 transport stream to
the software demuxer.
[ 23.467174] DVB: registering new adapter (MSI Mega Sky 55801 DVB-T
[ 23.502392] DVB: registering frontend 0 (Zarlink ZL10353 DVB-T)...
[ 23.546652] DVB: Unable to find symbol qt1010_attach()
[ 23.546662] dvb-usb: MSI Mega Sky 55801 DVB-T USB2.0 successfully
initialized and connected.
[ 23.548527] usbcore: registered new driver dvb_usb_gl861
The line about qt1010_attach() didn't look so good and now kaffeine
can't even find the device? Seems like a dead end here...
Could someone who got this device working help me, please. What kind of
system are you running? Maybe a brief walk-through on how to set things
up and compile etc? Please!
