Driver for Debian Stable (Jessie)

Postby thunderm » Wed Nov 18, 2015 5:44 pm

Hi, we bought 30pcs of TBS 6205 cards, and now it is time to make them work under Debian Jessie (kernel 3.16), i don't want to replace all my media tree modules with yours old tree, can you please make new driver compatible with changes in dvb-frontends?

Most important change is in functions :
set_frontend and same change in get_frontend
-static int tbs6205_set_frontend(struct dvb_frontend *fe, struct dvb_frontend_parameters *p) {
+static int tbs6205_set_frontend(struct dvb_frontend *fe) {
+ struct dtv_frontend_properties *p = &fe->dtv_property_cache;

of course there are more minor changes like this but i am pretty sure you can do that
-p->u.qpsk.symbol_rate
+p->symbol_rate
-p->u.qpsk.fec_inner
+p->fec_inner

Your kernel media tree is getting very obsolete.

Please, please i need those atleast for tbsdvbctl.o and tbs6205fe_driver.o

Thanks

Same problem (Debian SID) for TBS6680 I bougth 3 days ago.

The TBS driver tree is really outdated, and I would have to replace the whole media-kernel tree.

But this isn't a good idea, as the TBS-tree doesn't backport fixes, and as far as I can see not even potential security problems. And that is serious at least for me.

As example have a look at this CVS
http://www.cvedetails.com/cve/CVE-2014-8884/

Got fixed with (5 Sep 2014):
https://github.com/torvalds/linux/commi ... 536d489d16

Just checked and the linux-tbs-drivers sources still have this issue.

I really would suggest to update the TBS linux drivers base, and reorganize it so that only the tbs relevant parts get compiled/installed in this driver-package.

EDIT: Changed wrong TBS8860 with correct TBS6680 :)

This is not bug, it is future request for all Linux users.
