Viewing TV in RHL 7.1
Posted on 2001-07-23
I just installed RHL 7.1 (did a "everything" install, since I didn't know what not to install). I have a FlVideo 98 TV tuner PCI card, based on the BT878 chpset.
The PCI devices list shows this card as using IRQ 12, but video4linux does not seem to be installed on my system as default.
I dloaded the relevant driver tgz files, but I am facing lotsa problems while trying to build it. The first and foremost one is that if I try "make modules" in the /usr/src/linux-2.4.2 directory, I get the error:
"The present kernel configuration has modules disabled. Try 'make config' and enable loadable module support."
How can I enable this? Please understand that this is the first time I have installed Linux 7.1 and know next to nothing on kernel recompilation.
All I want to do is to watch TV on my box! Any help is appreciated.
