    Default Help with Realtek RTL2838UHIDIR DVB stick

    I have a Realtek RTL2838UHIDIR DVB stick, which I have not been able to get working. I have downloaded and successfully compiled a few different drivers from the web but to no avail.

    dmesg |grep -i realtek
    27.083940] usb 2-1.1: Manufacturer: Realtek

    dmesg |grep -i rtl

    As you can see, I have other dvb devices working, but not the RTLs


    All ideas would be appreciated

    Cheers

    have you installed that firmware?

    Yes It is installed and working fine. The tda10048 firmware is for the Hauppauge cards. I don’t think the Realtek USB card needs a firmware?
    I should redo the dmesg post to keep things clear. Here you are:

    dmesg |grep -i dvb
    [ 11.545396] e97a5d893fdf45c20799b72a1c11dca3b282c89c [media] fs/compat_ioctl: it needs to see the DVBv3 compat stuff

    [ 199.794739] dvb_usb_rtl2832u: no symbol version for module_layout
    [ 199.797176] dvb_usb_rtl2832u: no symbol version for module_layout

    I'm not sure if the errors at the start of the dmesg |grep dvb output are related to the rtl USBs or to the other cards.


    Keep the suggestions coming!

    BTW what does this message in dmesg mean? "dvb_usb_rtl2832u: no symbol version for module_layout"

    Hmm Am I posting my question in the wrong forum, or did I do something to upset people?

    Non I don't think so, most are probably like me - they don't know the answer to your problem with the driver for this usb dvb stick.

    As to the "no symbol version for module_layout" problem, this generally indicates a mismatch between the driver and your machine.
    Some headers etc are wrong. Try something like

    "zypper in kernel-default-devel" to make sure you have the correct header etc, and recompile.
