Installing manually saa7134 in Ubuntu 9.04 kernel 9.26.31rc6
As subject says:)
To fix slow connection problem with my realtek usb wireless card, I upgraded to 9.26.31rc6, the connection is perfect, but saa7134 module is not loaded by default any more, for that I have to manually compile and install it, since this is my first time installing a module, it’s quite basic, here are steps:
1)sudo apt-get install mercurial
hg clone http://linuxtv.org/hg/v4l-dvb
2) make -C /home/sqllyw/v4l-dvb/v4l
3) cd /home/sqllyw/v4l-dvb/v4l
sudo make install
saa7134 is back.
Updated on Aug 31, 2009: upgraded to Kernel 2.6.31 rc7, saa7134 is part of that.
