Interesting. The only problem with this is, at least in FC3, rc.local
runs after all the other init scripts. Which means if you are
automatically starting mythbackend with the mythbackend script the ivtv
module won't load until after mythbackend starts. What I did is modify
the mythbackend script to automatically modprobe ivtv if it isn't
Add the following lines to /etc/init.d/mythbackend in the start()
function after echo -n $"Starting $prog: ":
ivtv=`lsmod | grep '^ivtv' | cut -d' ' -f1`
if [ "X$ivtv" != "Xivtv" ]; then
Those of you with bttv cards can also do:
bttv=`lsmod | grep '^bttv' | cut -d' ' -f1`
if [ "X$bttv" != "Xbttv" ]; then
I have both of these in my mythbackend script because of the pcHDTV
HD2000 and dual PVR-250.
