How to compile drivers of TBS5881 for RPI

How to compile drivers of TBS5881 for RPI

Postby Newtman » Mon Oct 12, 2015 11:05 am

Hi there, I actually own a Raspberry Pi 2 and a TBS5881 usb dvbc/t tuner, I already tryed to use my TBS with the raspberry pi without success, i know that there are not specific drivers por ARM architecture, but I have seen out there some posts that claims to be using the RPI with the TBS without problems, does anybody have an idea of how could i compile these drivers to make my TBS work with the RPI?

When I send “make” command i get:

Preparing to compile for kernel version 4.1.7 File not found: /lib/modules/4.1.7-v7+/build/.config at ./scripts/ line 33, <IN> line 4. Updating/Creating .config

thanks in advance!

***WARNING:*** You do not have the full kernel sources installed.
This does not prevent you from building the v4l-dvb tree if you have the
kernel headers, but the full kernel source may be required in order to use
make menuconfig / xconfig / qconfig.

If you are experiencing problems building the v4l-dvb tree, please try
building against a vanilla kernel before reporting a bug.

Vanilla kernels are available at
On most distros, this will compile a newly downloaded kernel:

cp /boot/config-`uname -r` <your kernel dir>/.config
cd <your kernel dir>
make all modules_install install

Please see your distro's web site for instructions to build a new kernel.

WARNING: This is the V4L/DVB backport tree, with experimental drivers
backported to run on legacy kernels from the development tree at:
It is generally safe to use it for testing a new driver or
feature, but its usage on production environments is risky.
Don't use it in production. You've been warned.

any ideas?
