    ahhh tyvm silverdulcet,

    That worked perfectly! All is good now. Didn't need the 'make clean' command.

    Thanks for your patience and I really appreciate the explanation as to what the code is doing as well as the code supplied.

    Gotta love this community.

    Cheers

    Just an FYI, I figured out how to build with the existing source directory after a kernal update, without removing the directory and downloading the source over again. First change into the source directory:
    Code:
    cd saa7164-stable/
    Then use this command:
    Code:
    make distclean
    Then
    Code:
    make
    Finally
    Code:
    sudo make install

    From the INSTALL file instructions, this will remove the leftover build files from the last time you built the driver. When you use the make/make install commands it should now use your updated kernel instead of the old one.
    distclean - Cleans compiled files from the tree,
    latest used configuration and kernel
    version.

    Ahh cool, silverdulcet

    I just updated the kernel and restored the driver using the previous method, as I missed your last post prior to updating.

    The new method you just mentioned is much more efficient. Efficient is good I'll give that a go next time.

    Thanks.

    --yep thanks silverdulcet,

    that worked.

    Compiz is not happy with the upgrade though. I wound up with perfect sound and reception, but no video at all. No complaints, just no video in Me TV and VLC.

    I tried using the previous method for upgrading the driver as well, and wound up with exactly the same result.

    I thought it might have to do with my 9.7 ati catalyst drivers, but before uninstalling them, I disabled 'visual effects' as a first step, and the picture is fine.

    No great loss while tv viewing.

    Cheers.
