OK, now I'm confused. I was using the overlay at
https://github.com/MythTV/packaging. It's my understanding that Gentoo
ebuilds in that overlay will NOT work with 2.6.38 kernels because v4L1
is no longer supported. If I'm understanding correctly, that ebuild
Then other posts suggest that the current 0.24-fixes has patches so that
v4L1 is no longer required and thus, CAN be used with a 2.6.38 kernel.
Thus I've been trying to figure out how to get the current 0.24-fixes
installed on my box.
So, can I use either of these overlays to get a mythtv build that
supports ivtv? If so, which one. And if so, what must be included to
ensure a "properly configured kernel"?
Or optionally, can you tell me how to tweak the ebuild to get the
current 0.24-fixes? In the reading I've done on git, it seems like
finding the magical SHA1 numbers and editing the ebuild might do it.
Thanks for your help,
