There has been talk of creating a ./configure script.....

For now, you can edit v4l/Make.config to disable the build of certain 
modules.... The plan is to eventually have a configure script to ask you 
such questions, but the priority in the past weeks was to get everything 

You shouldnt have to have ANY of the v4l or dvb modules built into the 
kernel at all........ the whole point of installing cvs is to install 
those modules.

see the wiki-howto:


Hope this helps,
