Are you sure that ivtv is in the Mandriva 2.6.17 kernel? It may have
been provided in the distro, but the ivtv driver did not enter the
kernel proper until 2.6.22.

For 2.6.17 kernels, ivtv 0.7.4 is the current stable release, with no
further updates planned as all development is directed toward the
0.10.x and 1.x releases for kernels >= 2.6.18.
