you are using dropped v4l2 version 1x code from 2002 ...

No reason to believe we lose much. Sorry, though.

The latest working saa7134 driver on 2.4x is about ;)

Short time later there will happen a first compile breakage on
reorganization of the cx88 and introduction of blackbird.
By disabling cx88 and bttv you might come a bit further.

You need Gerd's latest kernel patch, since videodev.c doesn't get
patched with the snapshot for some compat ioctls. I used that one up to
some 2.4.29 rc, but possibly you might come further.


The 2.4.26-1 currently at the end of the list.
The patch-2.4.26-kraxel.gz are the accumulated patches in the right
order. Simplest is to install the snapshot later.

Good Luck,
