View Full Version : F8 latest & loading firewire

15th May 2008, 10:19 PM
Trying valiantly to get firewire and a cable box to work with my Myth system and getting nowhere.

A few months ago I made an effort and got it all to work except when actually trying to make it work - which would fail. Found some reported bugs with the Texas Instruments TSB82AA2 chipset so I just booted back to FC6 and gave up on the premium channels for a while.

Attacked it again yesterday, ran all the F8 updates and it seemed to totally screw it.

So I did a fresh F8 install and full update. Then followed the instructions again.

Seems something has changed in the way we load drivers...that or my inexperience with linux is making me miss something.

All should be installed, but when I edit modprobe.conf and add these to it

all I get is errors when I reboot. I tried putting 'install ' front of them, but that did nothing better.

Am I putting these in the wrong file? is there some syntax that's changed with the latest kernel?

Yes, I did blacklist per these instructions

Can anyone point me in the right direction to get this loaded? I'm getting zero elsewhere so hopefully this is a generic enough question that I don't have to await someone in the myth community to figure it out.

Thanks in advance.
