Installing the latest V4L TV tuner drivers for Ubuntu 12.10


Bill Giannikos


While Ubuntu 12.10 already includes a version of the V4L driver drivers, these drivers are under constant development and your TV Tuner card may require a later version to function properly. Here we will guide you in the necessary steps in installing the latest developmental V4L drivers.


This guide installs the “up to the minute” development drivers. These drivers have not been fully tested yet so may cause unexpected results in some cases. Although it is highly unlikely that this procedure will damage your Ubuntu installation it is still recommended you run a backup of your important data beforehand.


You should run a full update for your installation of Ubuntu or Linux Mint to ensure you have all the latest packages installed.

Installing the latest development V4L driver

Here are the steps in installing the latest V4L drivers.

1. Load up a terminal window if you are in the graphic interface.

2. Type in the following to install gcc, mercurial and the kernel headers:

sudo apt-get install patchutils libproc-processtable-perl build-essential git-core linux-headers-generic

You may be asked for your password with the above commands, type it in and press Enter.

3. Move to the /usr/src/ folder with:

cd /usr/src

4. Download the latest V4L drivers with:

sudo git clone git://

5. Move into the newly created folder with

cd media_build

6. Now start the building process with:

sudo ./build

This will take a while.

7. And finally we install these drivers with:

sudo make install

8. Reboot your computer and the newer V4L drivers will be used.

Please note that if Ubuntu release a updated kernel you will have to go through the above steps again.

Later on dinner that night was in a local Chinese restaurant, well it would be since I was in China, just for the guys who haven’t been to China it’s not the same food as you get from your local Chinese restaurant or take away in Europe, the UK or America, this stuff is the real thing, before I eat anything I like to ask first so that I know what I am eating, so that I don’t eat anything that I am allergic to, the beer and tea were very good and my favourite was the beef with a type of glaze on it, very tasty, other thing well I’m not to sure off if I would eat the chicken, it’s just boiled and then cut up and served completely different from the Chinese food in the UK where there’s not a bone insight. I can honestly say my host Neil and some of his assistants went out of there way to help me and look after me, I felt like some kind of celeb, they were certainly amazing folk.
