Ok thanks Jarod.  I did follow that faq and I did a compile but I got
some i2c errors which I later found are supposedly normal.  But now my
machine is hanging during startup up when it loads the ivtv module  :(
Now I have to go figure out how to keep it from loading that module so I
can boot the box up and recompile the ivtv module.  Its tough being a
linux newbie  :)

I just did a manual compile of 0.1.7 (to patch in M179 support), and 
had to make one change to the Makefile that I haven't seen in the FAQ 
(but I might have missed it...). Rather than uncommenting:


You need to add:


Then its just like the FAQ says.
