Hello group

I had a running pvr with kernel 2.4.26 and ivtv 0.2.

Yesterday I've build my a kernel 2.6.12 with CONFIG_FW_LOADER enabled and try to use ivtv-0.4.3.
I obtain the firmware for my PVR350 as descriped in http://ivtvdriver.org/index.php/Firmware.
The only difference is that I have obtained the pvr_1.18.21.22301_inf.zip instead of .22254
I locate the firmware in /usr/lib/hotplug/firmware. I had to create this directory because it doesn't exist.

# ls -alh /usr/lib/hotplug/firmware
insgesamt 816K
drwxr-xr-x  2 root root 4,0K 2006-03-14 00:06 .
drwxr-xr-x  3 root root 4,0K 2006-03-13 23:59 ..
-r--r--r--  1 root root 256K 2006-03-14 00:04 v4l-cx2341x-dec.fw

-r--r--r--  1 root root  14K 2006-03-13 23:59 v4l-cx25840.fw

After reboot the modules seems to be loaded successfully:
# lsmod | grep ivtv
ivtv                  222836  0
i2c_algo_bit            9608  1 ivtv
i2c_core               21808  8 tda9887,msp3400,saa7127,saa7115,tuner,tveeprom,ivtv,i2c_algo_bit
videodev                9632  1 ivtv

Both, /var/log/syslog and /var/log/messages do not contain any error message.

But /var/log/Xorg.0.log contains:
(II) IVTVDEV: driver for framebuffer: fbdev
(II) Primary Device is: PCI 01:00:0
(EE) open /dev/fb0: No such device
(EE) No devices detected.

Fatal server error:
no screens found

What should I do?

Thanks in advance
