I have a problem with installation drivers for my TV Tuner AverTV Hybrid Volad HD H830.

After running the script, I get this output:

I have read, that I need to install V4L. So I am trying to build it and get another error:

Can you help me? I have no idea what should I do. Thanks!

Compiling linuxtv fails when appliying patch

you need to edit the diff file and remove a particular patch, since the underlying driver code isn't on the filesystem.
