I have had a whole lot of trouble trying to get my ATI AIW
card working. I finally got my bttv module installed, but
when i try and run xawtv it still says /dev/video0 can't be
found.

My question is this, does the GATOS project even work with
Xorg 6.7.0 and kernel 2.6.9???

I am using Xorg 6.7.0 and I installed the correct driver for
ati however, the drm-kernel does not seem to match my
kernel 2.6.9. As well as the km does not load in the
modules. here is part of what i tried:

root@MACLEANS:/home/chris/km# make install
mkdir -p /lib/modules/`uname -r`/misc/
install km_api_drv.o /lib/modules/`uname -r`/misc/
install km_drv.o /lib/modules/`uname -r`/misc/
root@MACLEANS:/home/chris/km#

root@MACLEANS:/home/chris/km# /sbin/modprobe
km_drv
FATAL: Module km_drv not found.
