kernel module patch

Post by gilles74 » Mon Apr 09, 2012 9:32 am

hi

he want to use minimyth for my new HD frontend on Shuttle XS35GT but i have a problem: my ir receiver ir606 isn't supported by the kernel (module mceusb).
He know the patch to change that but i don't know if it's possible to patch the kernel with Minimyth ?

I ask Jarold Wilson to change the module mceusb

Unless you are willing to rebuild MiniMyth, patching the kernel is a PITA.

Is the following the extent of the patch?

Code: Select all

        /* Fintek eHome Infrared Transceiver */
If so, I can just add it to MiniMyth and it will be in the next version of MiniMyth, which be out right after MythTV 0.25 is released. If not, please let me any other changes that are needed and I can patch the MiniMyth kernel.

Yes i understand, it's necessary to rebuild minimythtv. So before i prefer ask this question.

The patch is ok for me and was included in new kernel 3.4 (i asked Jarod Wilson for that)

I'm very happy if you applied this for 0.25. :P
