[I'm Ccing Douglas who has taken the cape for maintaining the backports
tree for v4l-dvb. If your reply is intended for Douglas as well, please
Cc him as well in your replies, I don't think he's on the list]
So in order to see if it makes a difference for building mythtv on RHEL5
(for Douglas: we have build problems against the videodev headers) I did
package up the latest contents of the v4l-dvb backports tree (last
changes are from July, 2nd). After some patching for taking care of the
RHEL5 kernel (which is something between 2.6.18 and 2.6.2x, e.g. based
on 2.6.18 with many backports), the build succeeds. Still mythtv is not
happy with its videodev*.h headers and bails out.
The backport does not build on f12-f14 and RHEL6 (kernels 220.127.116.11,
18.104.22.168, 22.214.171.124 and 2.6.32).
For the lovers of mythtv on RHEL5, please test the package build with
the 20100702 build of video4linux. You will find similar errors to the
20100401 build, but you now know that you have the latest headers. If
you want to suggest changes to the contents of videodev*.h as before
please Cc Douglas.
Douglas, do you could advise us on how to get mythtv built against v4l
on EL5? There are many users that have asked for it and the build
stumbles on both the vendor supplied v4l headers as well as the
Also do you think you could update the backports tree? I'd be happy to
to the build testing and there are many users at ATrpms that can provide
feedback on the resulting drivers. Thanks!
