Steps to reproduce:
1. Boot 2.6.18-rc2
2. modprobe bttv
Comment 1 Martin von Gagern 2006-08-11 01:20:00 UTC
bttv on 2.6.18-rc3 still causes oops for me.
Comment 2 Martin von Gagern 2006-08-16 12:11:25 UTC
In 2.6.18-rc4, bttv needed CONFIG_VIDEO_V4L1 enabled to build.
After that, the module loaded without an oops.
