I bough an pv149 card (4 bt878), it gets detected by bttv as an 98 (pv150). but as it tries to asign an IRQ for each of the bt chips i get the following error

bttv0: can't get IRQ 41
bttv0: can't get IRQ 42
bttv0: can't get IRQ 43
bttv0: can't get IRQ 40

how can i change the IRQ numbers the card is trying to get?

Im using a 2.6 kernell

Thanks for all your help

I think you'd probably get a bit more joy by asking on a bttv/video4linux list or site. Alternatively you might find your bios allows you to control the settings. Even moving to a different PCI slot will often reassign interrupts.

Thanks for your input. I solved the problem...

Turn on ACPI on the bootloader menu.
