Sigma Designs Driver Download

As with any project there are some prerequisites. Besides the obvious, like needing a computer running a recent version of Linux, you will, for now, need some experience building packages from scratch. You will also have to be comfortable with a text editor. Yeah, you know what that means.

Dxr3 or Hollywood Plus

Here is even more information: See other items More Make sure that the pass-thru cable is linking the display adapter with Hollywood Plus.

Driver: Tall Boy Design using (2x) FW137 Woofers and (4x) FF85K Full Range: FF85K, FW167: Home Theater 2-Way Design using FT207D & FW137.

I hate to have to say it but before you can start watching DVDs and MPEG streams using this driver, you need to have either a Creative Labs DXR3 or a Sigma Designs Hollywood Plus hardware MPEG decoder card. If you have any other decoder card, this driver is of no help to you. So, Sigma Designs' XCard won't work with this driver. But if you have a fast enough computer you can still watch MPEGs and DVDs on your monitor with one of the software viewers available. (Remember, this wouldn't be here if someone didn't ask . . . )

The card name 'dxr3' in this howto refers to all DXR3, Hollywood Plus and compatible cards.

DriverKernel 2.2 or newer

This driver will only work with Linux kernels version 2.2 and greater. If you are running a 2.0 kernel, well then this is the time to get brave and upgrade! (And if you are running 1.2 or 1.3 on modern hardware then you are either criminally insane or a masochist, but that is a different story). But then there is the question, does a computer old enough to be running a 2.0 kernel actually have enough power to play a DVD - even with a hardware decoder card? Anyway, you'll need the source tree, and you'll need to have run at least 'make config' and 'make dep' in that tree. Preferably, you install the kernel source for your distribution (package kernel-source), check /usr/src/linux/README for instructions on how to configure the kernel, compile the kernel, install the new kernel, reboot and use uname -a to check that you're running the new kernel. That way you can be sure that the running kernel and the kernel source tree are in sync. Some distributions ship kernel development packages (kernel-devel or the like) that are enough to build modules for the corresponding kernel. If your distribution does that, it is recommended to use that package and build the modules against it, no need to recompile the kernel.

I2C DriverSoftware

If you are running a 2.2 kernel, you need to install the I2C driver version 2.4.5 or newer! You can get the I2C driver for 2.2 kernels at the LM Sensors Homepage. If you have a 2.4 kernel, then I2C comes with the kernel and you just need to make sure that it is compiled into the kernel or as a module. If you fail to do this, then your card will emit X-Rays from your TV and cook your DNA! Just kidding. In either case, just make sure that you have this I2C driver installed.

Windowsrmquasar.vxd (H+) or enc2dev.vxd (dxr3) (as of driver 0.12.0 this is optional and not recommended unless you have serious problems with the supplied microcode)

You need the appropriate VxD from the Windows driver for your card. If you have a Creative Labs Dxr3, then you will have enc2dev.vxd and if you have a Hollywood Plus, then you'll have rmquasar.vxd. Easy enough. Now, you should be able to find these bad boys in you windows/system directory. If you don't have a windows/system directory because you don't have windows, then you can still get these guys. You just need to obtain the latest version of your card's drivers from the appropriate web site and unzip them. But wait, what the hell is that?!?! They only give us rmquasar.vx_ and enc2dev.vx_! Where is the 'd'?!? They shorted us a 'd'! No, actually, Microsoft, in their infinite corporate wisdom, long ago instituted the policy of compressing their driver files for distribution, which strangely enough are compressed again (as zips, cabs, self extracting exes, etc.) which just wastes cpu cycles. And, if you haven't noticed, compressing a file twice rarely yields any gain in compression. Now, since we are missing a 'd', note: a very special 'd', from our driver file, we need to replace it. Included with the em8300 driver distribution in the scripts directory is a perl program called msexpand.pl which, when run like 'msexpand.pl rmquasar.vx_', will after some time make a new copy of the file, this time with the special 'd' replaced. Then you may continue.

Compiler and Related Tools

You will need Perl and a C compiler. If you're building from a Mercurial checkout, you'll need some GNU programs: automake and autoconf. Those two also require GNU m4. Also, bootstrapping a Mercurial checkout requires the development files for GTK+ 2.x (in particular, its m4 macros). If you get errors later about missing header files or libraries, you'll have to install those as well. Chances are that suitable versions are available in your distribution; if not, get them off the Internet.
