Basically, you need source for bttv since the card you mention uses the
BrookTree 848 driver. Here is the URL for a bttv mini-howto (or go to
your favorite mirror):
The documentation that comes with the 2.2.17 kernel source (and probably
others) says to ignore the bttv module in the kernel and compile it from
it's own source instead. That's what I did when I was using that
kernel. Now I'm using 2.4.0-test5 and I used the bttv and i2c modules
from the kernel source and it works great. I don't have a Zoltrix,
though, I have an AverMedia.
