Linux Tip, XawTV and Audio driver problem

I recently upgraded my computer by replacing the motherboard, CPU, memory and video card.

Motherboard: GA-P43-ES3G
CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q8300 @ 2.50GHz
Audio: Realtek ALC 888
Memory: 2 GB
Video card: NVIDIA GeForce 9600 GT
TV card: VAST bt878
OS: Fedora 12

Damn fast!!. BTW, I just wanted to see TV but It was really hard to solve. :( If you have same problem with Realtek ALC 888 and VAST bt878, below will be helpful for you!

1) XawTV - can't load any font

$ xawtv
....
WARNING: No DGA support available for this display.
/dev/video0 [v4l2]: no overlay support
v4l-conf had some trouble, trying to continue anyway
Warning: Cannot convert string "7x13bold" to type FontStruct
Warning: Missing charsets in String to FontSet conversion
Warning: Missing charsets in String to FontSet conversion
Warning: Missing charsets in String to FontSet conversion
Oops: can't load any font

I installed zvbi-fonts to solve this issue. but didn't solved. So, I tried to install all fonts as below:

$ yum install xorg-x11-fonts**

It'll work well.

2) MIC/Line-In doesn't work

You need to remove the PulseAudio. And then using ALSA mixer, you can enabling the line-in channel.

$ yum install alsa-**
$ yum remove pulseaudio

  1. [NOTE] In my case, I need to create below txt file one:

    edward@edward-desktop:~$ cat /etc/modprobe.d/bttv.modprobe
    options bttv bttv_gpio=1 gpiomask=0x0f audiomux=1,0x0f,0,0,0x0f tuner=11
