Hi: I've been happily using the ATrpms repo for more than 8 years,
but it feels like time to test the water over here.
I have a laptop now running under ScientificLinux 6.4, with kde
4.10.2 and Qt 4.8.4 from the kde-unstable repo, and MythTV
0.26.0-7.el6 from rpmfusion. Some parts of the recent installation
process weren't planned, but to my surprise the system seems to be
I'm glad the package is working for you! I had an issue with CentOS 6 so
gave up and went back to Fedora, which is a pity I was really looking
forward to not having to upgrade my MythTV as frequently.
One part of the working system is still from Atrpms. MythTV under
the current SL6 kernel doesn't recognise the tuner - a PCTV 290e
dvb-t/t2 usb device - so I'm running an earlier kernel with
video4linux driver package and kmdl from ATrpms; the last sync with
linuxtv was in Nov 2011.
In browsing the rpmfusion repo I haven't recognised packages that
might provide this functionality. What am I missing?
Nothing really. The problem is that the v4l package in RHEL/CentOS is
very old, but unlike ATRPMs, RPM Fusion has a policy, like Fedora EPEL,
of not providing packages that already exist in the upstream (or EPEL)
repositories. I don't completely understand the relationship between the
driver, library, and utility packages, but you can reference this BZ bug
I submitted some time ago for more information. Thus far, RH has
declined to update the v4l package.
Thanks, Richard. That's clear. I'll explore further and report back if
I make progress.
