I currently run a system with two WinTV Nova DVB-T cards with drivers compiled as modules. These both come up fine on boot.

My system is: Linux noam 3.7.10-gentoo #2 SMP Wed Mar 5 22:46:58 GMT 2014 i686 Genuine Intel(R) CPU 2140 @ 1.60GHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux

I have succesfully compiled the kernel drivers following guide from here http://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/TBS_Qbox_DVB-S2_CI_USB2.0 and instructions in the package.

However, on plugging in the device I get various symbol version errors:

Code:
 

[   19.230657] dvb_usb: disagrees about version of symbol dvb_dmxdev_init
[   19.230663] dvb_usb: Unknown symbol dvb_dmxdev_init (err -22)

This post http://www.tbsdtv.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1637&f=46 suggests doing: rm -rf /lib/modules/3.7.10-gentoo/kernel/drivers/media/ and then installing - I've tried this and also tried rebuilding the initramfs with genkernel after doing that but I then get:

Code:


[   19.270898] videodev: exports duplicate symbol __video_register_device (owned by kernel)
[   19.320449] videodev: exports duplicate symbol __video_register_device (owned by kernel)
[   19.360450] videodev: exports duplicate symbol __video_register_device (owned by kernel)
[   19.400389] videodev: exports duplicate symbol __video_register_device (owned by kernel)



as well.

I'm guessing that I've previously built videodev functionality in to my kernel, but can't work out which option turns it back into a module.

I have just tried: Device Drivers --> Multimedia support as a module, and that fixes it so, the steps are:

1) Build TBS drivers

2) Ensure kernel is built with Device Drivers --> Multimedia support as a module

3) rm -rf /lib/modules/[kernel version]/kernel/drivers/media/

4) genkernel --bootloader=grub --no-clean --no-mrproper --install initramfs ***

*** Not sure if this last step is necessary.
