Hi there

I need to compile the DVB-Realtek-RTL2832U modules as described here (for Ubuntu) but for my kernel version 3.5.7

the ubuntu way:
Quote:


...
- install linux headers
sudo apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r)
- clone this repo using git
git clone https://github.com/amb...
...
- compile code
make clean
make

- install module
sudo make install

- insert module (or reboot)
modprobe dvb_usb_rtl2832u



So far I have
...sys-kernel/linux-headers
Latest version available: 3.6
Latest version installed: 3.6

installed, but when I try to compile the module it tries to find the header dir:

Quote:

c2 RTL2832-2.2.2_kernel-3.0.0 # make
make -C /usr/src/linux-headers-`uname -r` SUBDIRS=/import/rtl/DVB-Realtek-RTL2832U-2.2.2-10tuner-mod_kernel-3.0.0/RTL2832-2.2.2_kernel-3.0.0 modules
make: *** /usr/src/linux-headers-3.5.7-gentoo: No such file or directory. Stop.
make: *** [default] Error 2


Any idea how I could solve this if at all possible?

[EDIT] Title changed /

I believe this driver is in kernel since September 2012.

Thank you 8) . Upgraded from 3.5.7 to 3.7.2 and it works now. 3.5.7-gentoo did not contain the needed frontent for rtl2832u.

Just for the people that despair of getting the IR Controller working, it's not implemented at this time.
After hours trying different things in different ways I decided to mail the dev of the driver:

Hi there
May I contact you for help with my DVB-USB Dongle?
I found your contact details while playing with the dvb-usb-rtl28xxu.ko module on my 3.9.2-gentoo system.
I just want to ask you if it's possible to use the remote controler from the DVB-T stick. I tried some tests with evtest and irw on some /dev/input /event* interfaces but the stick seems not to receive any signal (remote controler is working/lightning through my digicam). I read some hints in forums to enable ir-feature by adding an option to the modprobe module. Do you have any information on that?

+++++++++++

Hi,
sorry for the late reply. When I implemented the driver I did not do any work on the IR part of the code, because the main goal was to be able to watch TV. So with the current driver it is not possible to use the IR. The original Realtek driver although has support for IR but it is quite hard to port the messy code into the mainline kernel.

Grettings
Th.

Situation update:

...
your problem is Kernel 3.10. Remote controller has gone to the Kernel 3.11, which is currently in release candidate 3 phase. It will took one month more when that Kernel 3.11 is released.
You have 3 choices:
1) wait until 3.11 appears
2) use media out-tree driver build

3) use Kernel 3.11 release candidate

I emerged the git-sources (3.11.0-rc2) and I can confirm the IR-receiver now generates events. :P I guess the rest will be ordinary key mapping configuration.
