I don't know what the FC3 kernel has in it. What's needed is the stuff
in the snapshots on http://dl.bytesex.org/video4linux-20050310-100754.tar.gz
You need to use the dvbcore from the kernel, but configure nothing else.
Boot the kernel and "make install" in the video4linux directory should
set build the modules and install them.
On Mandrake 10.1, kernel 18.104.22.168 + an earlier snapshot 20050121
these are the modules I have loaded and it's working with kaffeine.
Other apps such as xawtv complain there is no /dev/video and yesterday
someone on the linuxtv mailing list suggests that this card does not do
video. I did have problems with snapshots after 20050120, a module
(or51132) for a different card kept getting built and insmod. I'm just
about to have another go with a later kernel and the latest snapshot.
