Open /etc/X11/XF86Config. It must seem like this:
# This loads the miscellaneous extensions module, and disables
# initialisation of the XFree86-DGA extension within that module.
# Option "omit xfree86-dga" # don't initialise the DGA extension
Uncomment the line above. Now you have dga enabled. If there is not such a
line, add it yourself.
>/dev/video0 and i dont have this device. anyone know how i can mknod this
>device and pass it the proper parameters?
in the source tree of the xawtv package you downloaded and unpacked (and
compiled obviously), there is a file named MAKEDEV.v4l. copy this in /dev
and execute it (/dev/MAKEDEV.v4l) this will create the devices you want.
I hope that helps...
