This is quite a distortion of the directions within the HOWTO. Please see:
#1, The command "scripts/merge-trees.sh" is for the old video4linux cvs
repository. [deprecated] The howto states that the proper command for
v4l-kernel is "make merge-trees", although the old method still works
for now, the behavior / functionality could change at any time. The old
tree-merging scripts had to make quite a significant patch to the
Makefile, in order to get the job done. Keeping those scripts around
requires too much maintainance on my part, so I've moved most of the
functionality into the Makefile, reducing the size of the patch required
in order to correctly merge the cvs trees. I will eventually nix the
scripts alltogether. This will be transparent to users merging with the
proper commands. Please use "make merge-trees" to avoid any surprises.
Here is the proper order of commands:
cvs -d :pserver:anonymous at cvs.linuxtv.org:/cvs/video4linux login
cvs -d :pserver:anonymous at cvs.linuxtv.org:/cvs/video4linux co v4l-kernel
cvs -d :pserver:anonymous at cvs.linuxtv.org:/cvs/linuxtv login
cvs -z3 -d :pserver:anonymous at cvs.linuxtv.org:/cvs/linuxtv co -P
#2, You shouldn't have to alter any files... What's this your saying you
did to Make.config? After the tree-merge, build for all of the hybrid
v4l/dvb modules is already enabled.
#3, About your error:
> DVB: registering new adapter (saa7130).
> DVB: registering frontend 0 (Philips TDA10046H DVB-T)...
> saa7130: dvb_dmx_init failed (errno = -12)
A bunch of people have been reporting this lately... Does anybody know why?
