Well, I managed to figure out how to install the 0.8 release from the
atrptms.net site using rpm, but that also failed with the "Missing
Dependency" error, plus an additional one (sorry, I don't have the text now,
as you will see later). I then tried to build the ivtv drivers directly
from their source distribution, which seemed to work, as I was able to get
the card recognized by the OS. However, when I tried to test the capture of
the card (using the "cat /dev/video0 > /tmp/test_capture.mpg" suggestion),
my machine power cycled unceremoniously.
I don't know if I'm just unlucky that I chose the week to try to set up this
system when the distributions are in a state of flux or what. As I was not
sure when things will be stable again, I just punted on the whole Fedora
plan and am in the process of setting up the system using KnoppMyth.
Thanks for you time, in any case.
