Error Compiling driver for intensity shuttle usb3 linux

PostSat Oct 20, 2018 11:46 pm

Hi , i am having some issues installing intensity shuttle in my linux
My linux is a based on debian and i have an amd64 machine .
When i try to iinstall the package desktopvideo_10.2a5_amd64.deb in my kernel 4.18.0-0.bpo.1-amd64

i get these errors on the log

I believe i downloaded the latest package for my usb3 intensity shuttle , but i believe that these errors could be related to a very new kernel , and problably the driver was for kernel 3.16 until 4.0 , but i am not sure .

Is there a way to solve this issue without downgrading the kernel on my linux ?
In case i have to downgrade the kernel then witch debian kernel version was this package tested ?

Thank you

Hi Pedro,

To build against kernel 3.19 or later, you will need at least Desktop Video 10.4.1 package, preferably the latest package. Desktop Video v10.2 was released over 4 years ago.
