Description August Hörandl 2007-05-04 08:49:31 UTC
~ $ xdtv -dvb

This is xdtv 2.4.0 running on Linux/x86_64 (2.6.21-gentoo).
scandir: Datei oder Verzeichnis nicht gefunden
filename = /home/hoerandl/.xdtv/xdtvrc
@@ xdtv is compiled without DVB support @@
probably because your kernel headers are too old
try to recompile with
  ./configure CC="gcc -I/usr/src/linux/include"

i have set USE=dvb in /etc/make.conf

dvb support is new in 2.4.0

my kernel headers are up to date:
~ > emerge -s linux-headers
*  sys-kernel/linux-headers
      Latest version available: 2.6.21
      Latest version installed: 2.6.21

Reproducible: Always

please use the ebuild here :

it will compile (a patched version of) ffmpeg and link statically with it, what is needed for dvb support in xdtv for now.
I prefer forcing usage of external ffmpeg in xdtv for various reasons, the main one being that I dont want duplicating maintainance efforts of ffmpeg here.

Alternatively you can help us getting dvb work with external ffmpeg, feel free to mail me about this :)
