Hey. I've been trying to get a m10000 working for about a week now
under a 2.6 kernel. I suppose thats why I'm having so much trouble.
Would you mind giving me a quick rundown of the versions of these peices
of software that you are using?
myth(.14 gentoo builds?)
ivtv(oh the issues)
I had myth working on an older board before I got this m10000 with a 2.6
kernel but I'm ready to switch back to a 2.4 now if thats what it takes
to get it going. Thanks for any help you can provide!
