I did this patch several weeks ago and made all the mistakes. I ended
up rebuilding the kernel and all the modules. However, somebody
suggested doing the following (I wish I had thought of this!)
1- Locate your existing tuner.o file and write it down.
- Mine is located here:
2- cd to the location of the tuner source code. Mine is here:
3- Patch the tuner.c and tuner.h files
- Note - Pretty much follow the ckennedy instructions, but the path in
the patch was not correct for my box. I had to have the patch file on
the same directory as the existing source file for the patch to find the
tuner.c and tuner.h files.
4- cd to /usr/src/linux
5- run make_modules
- do not run make_modules_install !!
6- Rename your original file to something (tuner.o.sav). Copy the new
tuner.o file to the installed location (from step 1 above).
Warning - Several people have horsed-up their installation when trying
to install this patch, but I think this process works. Things went
wrong for me when I did make_modules_install, which should have worked,
but that's another story! Good luck,
