Hi I have been running FC3 quite stabily for a long time, this weekend I
decide it wont be hard to start again and use FC4 this time instead.
Oh how wrong am i! I have FC4 all up and running to the stage that FC3 once
was. However I have noticed this strangeness:
In FC3 I was using kernel 2.6.11.x, my dvb card in myth would do a full scan
with no multiplex prior listed and pick up all channels
In FC4 using kernel 2.6.14, my dvb card wont do a full scan, it fails
tuning, if I add multiplexs manually and scan those (ie ones from FC3 db)
then it will pick up most channels but fails to tune 2 multiplexs.
In FC4 if I boot using kernel 2.6.11, I can now tune these 2 multiplexs as
Is it me or is there a weird issue in the newer kernels relating to DVB. I
tried kernel 2.6.15 (from fc4 testing) and I also tried compiling CVS
DVB/V4L modules against 2.6.14. none of this worked either.
How come I am loosing signal by changing kernels?
Now I would just revert back to using 2.6.11, but support packages for this
kernel are long gone, ie nvidia-kmdl and I don't want to use the nvidia
Does anyone have any ideas?
BTW my system is:
½ gig ram
