i need help setting up a techwell tw6802 video card in ubuntu 10.04 when I run xawtv I get the following error cant open /dev/video0 :no such file or directory but when i run lspci the card shows

Just because the card is recognized by the OS as installed hardware, doesn't mean that a driver has been loaded for it. What is the output of the command "lsmod"? In any case, most modern cards support the vesa driver specs, so you should be able to specify vesa as your hardware driver when you install Ubuntu, or run the X configuration tool. It will only provide a maximum of 1600x1200 resolution, and performance is not adequate for full-screen, full-motion video, but for most stuff it works ok.
