Thanks for the hint - meanwhile, I have been hunting/installing for
other approaches, and found
http://gossamer-threads.com/lists/ivtv/devel/17399 (Winston building
Kernel and module RPMs without 4kstacks), which seems to work as in me
getting ivtv to load without crashing the machine, and seeing for the
first time live TV on my screen. :)
The con side of it is:
[root at mythtv ~]# apt-get install ivtv-kmdl-`uname -r`=1:0.3.2c ivtv=1:0.3.2c
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
Selected version 1:0.3.2c-66.rhfc3.at for ivtv-kmdl-2.6.10-1.760_FC3
Selected version 1:0.3.2c-66.rhfc3.at for ivtv
You might want to run `apt-get -f install' to correct these:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
nvidia-graphics-devices but 1.0-4.rhfc3.at is to be installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or
specify a solution).
Am i correctly assuming that the problem is similar to the one mentioned
above - "mixup" of different kernel versions, which (yes, you never
recommend "-f" :) ) could be overcome with -f?
The question is rather theoretical (but nevertheless interesting), as I
tend to wait for either his or your kernel version 1.760 without the
4kstacks, and go on from there.

I am not a coder/kernel-expert, but judging from my experience (seems to
currently somehow work with the no4kstacks-kernel), I,d buy that. :)
