In my case, 2.4.25?  and 2.6.10 both locked up, but i wasn't getting
any error logs or anything... It would just freeze. Could be that the
api ivtv is looking for in the kernel is changed in 2.6.10.

My current stable box is a KnoppMyth R5A12 (kernel 2.6.9) and ivtv
0.2.0 (rc3h). Works great, though it's all new hardware from my lockup
machine, which I'm sure would still lock up today even though it's not
a VIA chipset.
