These are really old webpages, they are here just for reference. You can find tarball of LinuxVideo CVS on main GATOS webpage.
Link to previous homepage.
GATOS project source code can be found in linuxvideo CVS.
May 2001 At the moment there is really no reason to use old modules for XFree 4.0.1.
If you are running XFree 4.0.x, I suggest you upgrade to 4.1.0 and use ati.2 modules.
Wednesday 24 October 2001 An experimental video4linux capture module is now available. Get it from the our CVS at Sourceforge or from Sourceforge file area.
For instructions on installing ATI-4.1.0.i386.tar.gz modules see in the end of this file.

Do _NOT_ mix XFree drivers (i.e. 4.1.0 drivers are meant _only_ for 4.1.0).
Installing ati.2 binaries
Please make sure to install _ALL_ of ati.2 binaries (if you compile _apply_, _make_ and _install_ patches (see ati_xv/README)).
If you just install modules it will _not_ work. Installation process for 4.0.2 is identical (s/4.1.0/4.0.2).
Note: many people have reported problems installing over RPM or DPKG
based installations. These problems stem from the fact that package maintainers get creative
and put XFree86 in non-standard places. Our "official" recommended way is to either
compile XFree86 4.1.0 tree yourself (this way you can develop too) or to use
plain XFree86 binaries - the ones in .tgz format.
After installing the drivers for XFree 4.x.x you need a TV viewer application.
The "official" TV viewer for these drivers is AVview.
Many others (i.e. zapping and xawtv) are also available.
The packaged releases are available on GATOS Sourceforge download area.
Also, the sourcecode is available in CVS:
