1. I installed all required packages, although not all packages came
from ATrpms as mentioned earlier.

linux/videodev2.h as that is already included by linux/videodev.h from
the MythTV source
3. Manually compiled the source using the ./configure line from the

Yes, perhaps that would be a good idea, although I spoke to one of the

(me), jya and Captain_Murdoch).
