Linuxhelp _ Technical Support _ Ati Aiw 7500 On Redhat 8

Posted by: baperanc Nov 20 2002, 01:16 AM

I have only been using Linux for 2 days so far, so i have almost no experience with it. I'm using Redhat Linux 8 (dual boot with win2k) and would like to get my ATI all-in-wonder 7500 TV card to work. On the ATI website they tell you to go to for support. I tried to follow the instructions there but it assumes you know a lot about Linux. I also tried to install xawtv but the following came up:

This is xawtv-3.74, running on Linux/i686 (2.4.18-18.8.0)
can't open /dev/video0: No such device
v4l-conf had some trouble, trying to continue anyway
v4l2: open /dev/video0: No such device
v4l: open /dev/video0: No such device
no video grabber device available

Could someone tell me how to do this, or tell me that its infact impossible.

thanks, Bill
