I'm taking up this old thread, specifically to do with the
Axel Thimm wrote that the linuxtv-dvb-devel package had just been
removed. Which distribution had it been removed from? Fedora, or atrpms?
Any idea where I can find out why it was removed?
At the moment I'm proposing to come up with a new linuxtv-dvb-devel
package. I don't believe that a linuxtv-dvb package is necessary,
though, as the functionality is in the 2.6 kernel already.
I note that xine solves the problem by including the necessary headers
as part of its own build sources. I haven't looked at what mplayer does.
While the functionality may be merged into the kernel in 2.6, that does
not mean that the dvb headers are installed by the kernel into
/usr/include. That seems to be the responsibility of glibc (this
maintains the separation between the kernel and userspace). Until glibc
catches up, it seems that a linuxtv-dvb-devel package will be necessary.
