    ok i downloaded the driver for my card the readme says the following:


    Pick up videodev + v4l2 patches from
    Configure, build, install + boot the new kernel. You'll need at least
    these config options:


    Type "make" to build the driver now. "make install" installs the
    driver. "modprobe saa7134" should load it. Depending on the card you
    might have to pass card=<nr> as insmod option, check CARDLIST for
    valid choices.

    I am lost here, could someone help me out with this?
