Help with the saa7134 driver

Post by Markus Hoffman » Tue, 10 Dec 2002 02:47:45



Hello,

I now got the following packages:

saa7134-0.2.1.tar.gz
linux-2.4.20.tar.gz

and the patches:
01_hammer-2.4.20-rc4.diff
10-scsi-media-changer-2.4.20-rc4.diff
11-v4l2-api-2.4.20-rc4.diff
30_bttv-0.7.x-2.4.20-rc4.diff
30_bttv-doc-2.4.20-rc4.diff
30_i2c-2.4.20-rc4.diff
30_tuner-2.4.20-rc4.diff
patch-2.4.20-rc4-kraxel

I gave it a try and my best results are:

I applied the patch-2.4.20-rc4-kraxel to the sources and compiled the
kernel. The Kernel was installed and everything seems to work.
I did a make and make install on saa7134-0.2.1.

Except for the
modprobe saa7134 card=9
causes an error:
/lib/modules/2.4.20/v4l2/saa7134.o: init_module: No such device
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters,
including invalid IO or IRQ parameters
/lib/modules/2.4.20/v4l2/saa7134.o: insmod
/lib/modules/2.4.20/v4l2/saa7134.o failed
/lib/modules/2.4.20/v4l2/saa7134.o: insmod saa7134 failed

SO what does this mean?
Do I need the other patches ? I tried them, but then I get unresolved
symbols in the /saa7134.o. In what order should they be applied?

It would be nice if you could help me.
Many thanks
Markus
