Where to find Linux-DVB driver header files?!

Hello there,

is there anybody who knows what url i should use to locate my Linux-DVB driver header files.
I use the DVB-drivers build into the kernel and my source-code is installed right here:
/home/cisco/rpmbuild/BUILD/kernel-2.6.17/linux-2.6.17.686
Thanks in advance for the futured answers:-)

Best Regards

First you must install the kernel-devel (or kernel-smp-devel) package, then the headers are in /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/build. Didn't we go through this already in another thread?

Yes,
but i already isntalled the kernel-smp-devel. Last time you said to install vdr with yum but it is impossible because
then i can't install further applications and thus until now i'am still busy trying to run VDR.
The compilation went smooth already but everytime when i'am trying to start VDR, my systems say
[root@localhost VDR]# vdr
vdr: can't access video directory ./video
[root@localhost VDR]#

Do you know what i can change and it is very strang because i build the source-code with this video-dir:/dev/video
Or do you think that i have to mount the video-dir first before the system regonize.
Please your opinion because i finally want to start watching DVB-broadcasts:-)

Cheers

A lot of DVB drivers are in "kernel-source," not kernel-devel... I got my ATI HDTV card working by using a driver in the kernel-source package.

Do you also used VDR to see the video-channels??
I have a lot of troubles the moment that VDR is installed and i think it has something to do
with the video-dir.
Can you give me the DVBDIR that you used from the kernel-source to make this work??

Cheers

Why couldn't you install further applications after installing vdr through yum? If your repository configuration is broken, just fix it and yum works again.

Yes, that's correct.

What i mean is that i can't install plugins for VDR when i install it the first time with yum.

You can't install vdr plugins by yum or you can't compile vdr plugins from source? I guess you need to install vdr-devel if you want to compile plugins.

I mean that if you install vdr with yum afterwards a plugin-installation for VDR impossible is.
And that is not what i want. Thus i need to install it from source.
That's why i need to know where i can find the Linux-DVB driver header files??
I need this url because i need to config the Makefile before i can compile vdr.
There is a variable in the Makefile that calls DVBDIR. Before you do a configuration it points to ../DVB but this is only good when you installed and compiled the dvb-drivers by yourself.
I use the dvb-drivers from the kernel so i think i need to change the variable to the right url before
having the right configuration.
So is there anybody who knows where i can find the Linux-DVB driver header files?!

So, if you do "yum install vdr", it's impossible to do "yum install vdr-femon" or "yum install vdr-subtitles"? What errors do you get when you try that? Or do you mean something different?

maffioso - this may not answer your question, but if you're looking for various DVB drivers, then install kernel-source, and look in this directory:
/usr/share/doc/kernel-doc-2.6.17/Documentation/dvb

the script "get_dvb_firmware" if what you need to retrieve DVB drivers.

Oke thanks for the nice tip PilotJLR.
I will certainly take a look at this file.
Markkuk to answer to your question. I already compiled VDR from source but everytime when i'am
trying to run vdr(with the "vdr"-command) my system tells me this:
cannot access ./video

when i run this runvdr-script in /etc/rc.d my system tells me this:
[root@localhost VDR]# /etc/init.d/vdr start
Starting Video Disk Recorder (vdr): vdr: warning - cannot set dumpable: Invalid argument
[ OK ]
[root@localhost VDR]#


when i run the w_scan-application my drivers are loaded successfull, the application scans perfectly but
when this application try to starts VDR is says this again:

vdr: warning - cannot set dumpable: Invalid argument
./w_scan_start.sh: line 286: Starting: command not found
Checking wether /usr/local/bin/runvdr knows 'start'.. [ NO ]

On most systems vdr should run now - if not, reboot.
GOODBYE! Exiting now.

[root@localhost WSCAN]#


Do you know what's going on and what the hell does this "dumpable" mean????????

Best Regards
