Package: linux-kernel-headers
Version: 2.5.999-test7-bk-15
Severity: normal

I'm trying to build nvrec(a v4l2 program).  It builds fine but dose not get
the correct ioctl(headers).  I know the bigger issue is binary
compatability, however I don't think there are enuff ppl using v4l that it
will get fixed.  I have tryed copying header files from 2.6 with varable
results.  If it builds I get the same problem or I get struct time problems.
I have reported the struct time problem previously and it is fixed untill I
break it.

The meat.
paladin:/usr/src/real/nvrec/nvrec-20020812# divx4rec -o tmp.avi -F 20
Starting nvrec.c, version 20020812 (nvrec-20020812).
nvcore_parse_file(617): Error opening "/root/.nvrec.conf"
v4l1_core_init(323): Size: 384x288 from /dev/v4l/video0
v4l1_core_init(393): Set window: Invalid argument
main(65): nvrec: initialising capture device: Invalid argument

The 393 is the result of not using the right header during build.  ioctl
numbers and struct's may have changed.  I have not the time to find ought
exactly why the API has change.

linux-libc-dev superseeded linux-kernel-headers in sid
and there are v4lv2 userspace programs so i doubt
that this issue still exists.

thus closing
