Ragazzi ciao a tutti! ho sempre avuto molti problemi con questa scheda di m…a e ora installando suse 11.1 pensavo di poter passare definitivamente ad un OS ke non sia linux…purtroppo continua a dare sempre problemi…Se guardo tra le informazioni dell’hardware di sistema la rileva correttamente come connessa all’usb e il giusto driver (em28xx) tuttavia quando lancio kdetv non funge!!!cosa devo fare? siate gentili…ciao

Hello to all boys! I have always had many problems with this ****ing card and yesterday installing suse 11.1 think i can definitely go to an OS isn’t windoxx… unfortunately continues to give me always problems … If look in the information equipment System detects properly connected at usb and with the right driver (em28xx) however when I start kdetv not act! what should I do? Be polite hello …

Sorry for the lenght but i want to be clear…i follow these instructions Pinnacle USB PCTV - openSUSE but when i do this command (# modprobe em28xx-dvb) report these errors (FATAL: Error inserting em28xx (/lib/modules/ Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)
sh: /sys/bus/pci/drivers/dev//new_id: No such file or directory
WARNING: Error running install command for em28xx
FATAL: Error inserting em28xx_dvb (/lib/modules/ Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg))
What i can do???please help me!!!

At a guess…

If you have installed nvidia dirvers, or some such package, your kernal version maynot be the latest available from the repos you have enabled. If this is the case, it could be that when you ran:

zypper install kernel-source

you possibly got your source and you installed kernel out of sync.
When you built the em28xx-dvb module it would have built against the out of sync source…

Check what kernel version you have installed.

uname -a

now grab that source (say yes to downgrade the version):

zypper in kernel-source=

Now try build the module and load it.

Hope that helps
