[mythtv-users] ivtv lockups - how do I uninstall the driver?

2-3 times a week, mythbackend.log fills up with "ivtv driver not
responding", while /var/log/messages fills up with ivtv DMA errors. This
causes my backend to completely lock up - no ssh, no ctl-alt-del, no
response to anything other than the reset button.
I would very much like to update the ivtv driver version - I have
0.10.1that came with Ubuntu Feisty. The only problem is I have not
been able to
un-install the current driver. The Ubuntu package manager allows
un-installation of something called "ivtv-utils", but after removing that,
the ivtv 0.10.1 driver still loads.
Unfortunately, neither the howto at ivtvdriver.org, or
help.ubuntu.comdiscuss un-installation. I'm guessing I need to go and
manually delete some
files from the morass in /lib/modules/ , but I have no idea which ones. I
would appreciate any insight...
Also, it was suggested on the ivtv-users list that the specific DMA error
fixes are in the v4l-dvb repository at linuxtv.org. While the ivtv driver
downloads had installation instructions, the downloads from
http://www.linuxtv.org/hg/ do not. Any suggestions?
