I've been trying to get Rivatv working for over a year now.
I've gotten absolutely nowhere with it.
Can someone help me please?
I've gotten it down from MANY error messages to just one error message, an
unresolved symbols error in rivatv.o
I do not understand the error message and I can not find any info on it.
I've googled until my eyeballs bleed, I've asked the rivatv group but get no
response. I just don't know what else to do.
The card is 100 percent operational, this box that it's in dual boots
mandrake/winbloz and it works perfectly under winbloz 2000.
I can capture, record, playback, edit, watch, whatever under winbloz.
Reboot into mandrake and it's no-go. I've got to get this thing working
under mandrake, the winbloz option is unacceptable. M$ has to GO from this
Here's what I have and the results of my last attempt.
Mandrake 9.1, P4 2ghz, 512m ram.
I don't have any exotic hardware installed, just a scsi card (for scanner)
and an ultrastore ide controller (6 drives)
Video card is a Gainward GF4 PowerPack! Ultra/650XP VIVO.
The chip is a Philips SAA7108E.
It's #36 in the rivatv "cardlist"
