Hi all,

I have finally made the move from mandrake10.0 and Mythtv 0.15, to
Gentoo ( I have built a couple of laptops and a server.) I am
installing Gentoo 2005.1 I am building against 2.6.12 kernel. When I
run dmesg I get

Linux video capture interface: v1.00
bttv: driver version 0.9.15 loaded
bttv: using 8 buffers with 2080k (520 pages) each for capture
bttv: Bt8xx card found (0).

It looks like my kernel build has picked up the capture card when I
run ls in /dev I the only mention I get about dvb


if I run mythsetup, and select the dvb capture card I get can't find
the card. To me it appears that the kernel revision I have has changed
the dvb location from /dev/dvb/frontend0 to /dev/dvb.frontend. Is
there a work around to get my capture card working under mythtv?
