#12667 closed Bug Report - General (Abandoned)

fixes/0.28 doesn't build against kernels older than 3.7 (ish)

Hi All,

I raised the below on the myth discussion list and was advised to raise a ticket for it....

I've been on 'master' for a few months but decided to do one of my fairly ad hoc mythtv updates recently and saw there was now a 'fixes/0.28' so have switched to that.

However I was unable to compile as I was missing v4l2-common.h

Looking at the kernel sources I have lying around it seems the user space version of this arrived somewhere between 3.4.106 (which I'm running) and 3.7.10, which is the next version of the kernel I have source handy, and this has the file in.

I copied the 3.7 user space version of this and v4l2-controls.h to /usr/local/include/linux and it builds and runs just fine.

(Upon investigation it looks like both the required files consist of defines and enums only).
