[solved] TV card not loaded after upgrade to kmod

After the upgrade to mkinitcpio and kmod replacing module-init-tools, my TV card (Hauppauge WinTV Nova-S) is not loaded.

Downgrading mkinitcpio and re-installing module-init-tools and regenerating my initramfs and all is well.

Is there any extra setup needed with kmod? There are no man files in the kmod package so I'm at a loss what to do.

Incase it helps, here are (maybe not all) the modules related to my tv card when downgraded:

-->lsmod | grep dvb
cx88_dvb               23415  39 
cx88_vp3054_i2c         1932  1 cx88_dvb
videobuf_dvb            4794  1 cx88_dvb
dvb_core               92868  2 cx88_dvb,videobuf_dvb
cx8802                 13121  1 cx88_dvb
cx88xx                 73365  4 cx88_dvb,cx88_alsa,cx8800,cx8802
videobuf_dma_sg         7936  5 cx88_dvb,cx88_alsa,cx8800,cx8802,cx88xx
videobuf_core          15879  5 videobuf_dvb,cx8800,cx8802,cx88xx,videobuf_dma_sg
i2c_core               20492  15 isl6421,cx24123,wm8775,cx88_dvb,cx88_vp3054_i2c,cx8800,cx88xx,tveeprom,v4l2_common,videodev,i2c_piix4,nouveau,drm_kms_helper,drm,i2c_algo_bit

Re: [solved] TV card not loaded after upgrade to kmod

Did you regenerate your initramfs after upgrading to kmod 3-5?

Re: [solved] TV card not loaded after upgrade to kmod

Yes - initramfs regenerated after each upgrade and downgrade.

Forgot to mention I was also suffering from the 'Filename too long' FS#27862 and your updated kmod in that bug's comments fixed that. I'm guessing that my issue is unrelated.

With both kmod packages, initramfs complains that /etc/modprobe.d/modprobe.conf doesn't exist, but I've never added anything in there anyway and the kmod package doesn't contain that file.

You added it to /etc/mkinitcpio.conf. This isn't related to module-init-tools or kmod.

I realised that when poking around after my post.

I noticed that kmod-3-5 was in the repos so I installed that, removed modprobe.conf from my mkinitcpio.conf and regenerated my initramfs...  and it's now picked up my tv card:)

marked as solved
