Re: Where are my kernel modules in the source tree ?

Yeah, I didn't really want to do this.
I am building a kernel for another machine.
To do a modules_install, I need to become root on the compile machine.
I did not want to do this. I built the kernel as an ordinary user.
I really do want the modules to install to a directory of my choosing.
Thanks anyway !
bttv not loading for Hauppauge WinTV 250 PCI
I want to convert my VHS tapes to VCD so I installed
a Hauppauge WinTV card.
Everything goes fine until I get to bttv.
bttv is failing to load with a "no such device" error,
but lsmod is finding the PCI card. I not sure want bttv
is looking for, and I don't see anything helpful in the syslog.
any ideas would be helpful?
# modprobe i2c-core
# modprobe i2c-algo-bit
# modprobe videodev
# modprobe v4l2-common
# modprobe tuner
# modprobe bttv card=2 radio=0
init_module: No such device
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters,
including invalid IO or IRQ parameters.
You may find more information in syslog or the output from dmesg
modprobe: insmod bttv failed
