Dear Michael,

Thanks once more for your efforts maintaining the package. However, how do I get the dvb-c version of the drivers installed?

Best regards,

Dear Michael,

Thanks for your reply and the hint to the lts-kernel. I am new to arch and thus I used the kernel that came along with the installation. However, with the lts-kernel everything works like a charm.

michaelpolster commented on 2017-04-23 17:06

the current package isn't outdated, because it's fully functionally with a 4.9 lts kernel. Is there any big advantage to shift it for a newer kernel? I made the experience, when I used the modules of TBS with too new kernels, they're often not as new, as them. have you tried it with the lts-kernel?

Dear nickb937,

Thanks for your efforts maintaining the tbs-dvb-driver package. However, to which file shall the patch be applied?

You need to apply this patch to build on 4.10 (tested on 4.10.5)

yes, I'll try to maintain the package. Because I own a tbs card, which I use very often. I already made a local package and now I try to upload it into git, so everybody can use it.... (it's my first package too)

lorcap commented on 2017-03-05 21:58

I'm a bit puzzled. Yesterday, I decided to see if I could maintain this orphaned package (my first one). Today, I was reading how to build a package when I saw it has a new maintainer.

@michaelpolster, are you going to maintain tbs-dvb-drivers? Thanks.

Sunday commented on 2017-02-03 21:22

Hey guys. I'm afraid I will probably not be using this package myself in the future so I can not test it properly. I hope someone els finds the time to maintain it...
