Well, truly, the place to ask this would be ivtv-users, but...

Hmm. OK. If you want to stick with 2.4, that's your choice, but,
personally, I love my config using 2.6. Works very well (especially
with IVTV).

Are you already running the kernel you're staying with? (2.4 in this
case). If so, and everything is compiled for 2.4, the only thing you
_should_ need to recompile is IVTV for the new version (I am assuming
you're upgrading to a new version). If everything's compiled for 2.6,
then, yes, you will need to recompile all of it (as far as I know).

What process?

Hope this helps!
