looks like i have the same problem with a fresh ubuntu 13.04 kernel install on my 12.04 64bit system, through linux-image-generic-lts-raring package.

the driver module won't load with some errors like :
saa716x_core: disagrees about version of symbol dvb_dmxdev_init


i'll have to reboot to produce the exact errors again when i try to load manually with "modprobe saa716x_tbs-core".

but i wanted to know if the whole sequence is required to build the driver :

sudo make distclean
./v4l/tbs-x86_64
sudo make menuconfig
sudo make
sudo make rminstall
sudo make install


i especially tend to skip "make menuconfig", going for a make and make install
and make has some text warnings when it starts, complaining i don't have the full kernel source.. but it's been doing that for many revisions so i've discarded it.

well if it worked for ragamesh on the same kernel i guess i'll just have to follow in his footsteps

okay i managed to install the drivers on raring 3.8 kernel by removing the following directory :

/lib/modules/3.8.0-27-generic/kernel/drivers/media/

short of this, distclean / rminstall / install will not manage to get some existing modules out of the way and the driver will fail to load.

Yup, been discussed many times. v4l changed the folder layout so rminstall is assuming the new folder layout and missing some of the old files under the old layout

okay thx
that's more or less what i figured out, hope it'll be fixed in a later release.

how can i find out what version of v4l is included in the tbs driver ?
i'd like to see if i can find a dvb-t usb stick that will also work when i install the tbs driver on my system.

Its not really a bug and cant see if being fixed because its working correctly. The problem will sort it self out as distro's start using more current kernels.

I dont really know what version they are using, crazycat and I have been working to add more and more cards as opensource, hopefully TBS adopts some of these drivers and starts using them in newer drivers, it makes it alot easier for users with special requirements.
