I have found something that I think it could be a man page bug. I have
installed OpenBSD 3.8/i386 release from official CDROM and I am very
happy with it. I have installed most of the software I use under Linux
(I am writting from Linux now cause I have not configured thunderbird yet).
The system does not recognize my TV CARD tuner type out of the box, and
xawtv does not work. As I did not know if it was possible to configure
TV CARD with config(8), I tried to compile a kernel, so I started to
read the man pages.
bktr(4) man page states the following for setting the card type in the
kernel config file:
Select a specific card (overrides autodetection). `nnn'
to one of the names listed and explained below.
ASKEY_DYNALINK_MAGIC_TVIEW Askey/Dynalink Magic TView
and so on.........
# I have added this to GENERIC.CUSTOM:
as stated in the man page.
After some minutes of compiling, compilation fails and complains that
ASKEY_DYNALINK_MAGIC_TVIEW is not defined (or something like that, I do not
remember it exactly).
Searching for clues on /usr/src/sys, I found
file, with the following macro definitions (among others):
#define CARD_IO_GV 9
#define CARD_FLYVIDEO 10
#define CARD_ZOLTRIX 11
#define CARD_KISS 12
#define CARD_VIDEO_HIGHWAY_XTREME 13
#define CARD_ASKEY_DYNALINK_MAGIC_TVIEW 14
#define CARD_LEADTEK 15
#define CARD_TERRATVPLUS 16
#define CARD_TVWONDER 17
So, I had to add a "CARD" in front of the card type. I changed my
GENERIC.CUSTOM kernel config file like this:
I compiled again the kernel and booted with the new one. Now I can watch
TV with xawtv fine. :-)
Should I fill a bug report?
Thank you very much for everybody and for the developers who make this
Thanks in advance.
