I didn't have them either and use ioctl_bt848.h instead. Not that this
may be correct and with the fear to be shotdown by someone on the list
here is what I do:
#include <dev/pci/bt848var.h> /* extensions to meteorvar.h */
#include <machine/ioctl_bt848.h> /* extensions to
Just rename make the #if statement fail by renaming __NetBSD__ to
something else, e.g. 0, and you should be able to continue the
compile. I can sent you ioctl_meteor.h if this is missing in your
collection too. I've copied ioctl_meteor.h and ioctl_bt848.h into
/sys/arch/i386/include and /usr/include/machine. Later on you will
need the header files in /usr/include/machine for the build of fxtv or
any other application wanting to talk to your card.
I've just manged to connect the antenna into the card....
Now I can watch my favourite programs whilst hacking away... ;)
Hope this helps and let me know if you get stuck...
