Ever tried searching here: http://www.linuxtv.org/mailinglists/linux-dvb/
Well, I did:
In short, find the config for the current kernel (usually
Copy this file to the root of your current kernel tree to a file
run 'make dep' in the kernel tree
Retry the linuxtv compilation.
Depending of your setup, you might be unable to load the module because of
kernel version mismatch, if so, edit the Makefile (at the top), make dep,
and recompile the driver.
Also there is a howto on kernel stuff on www.tldp.org i belive.
This is not a support channel for kernel/driver compilation, but since you at
least cared enough to mark your post OT...
