I am trying to use an Easycap driver for analog to usb camera conversion to use with TX2 , I am using jetpack 3.3/3.2/3.1 which comese with kernel version 4.4 . The Easycap driver uses a STK1160 chip and the driver for the chip is already in the mainline kernel from version 2.6 . So when i plug in it detects there is a new usb device in the system . But nothing appears like /dev/video1 or 2 or anything . So I checked the L4t sources and STK1160 is not included in kernel configuration, so it was never compiled at the first place . so I tried to compile the kernel and after " make tegra18_defconfig " i ran “make menuconfig” and i didnt find any option for STK1160 .
Now how do i change defconfig so it includes the STK1160 driver which is located in driver/media/usb/stk1160 directory . I actually tried just editing tegra18_defconfig in arch/arm64/configs directory and added “CONFIG_VIDEO_STK1160=y/m” and then ran "make tegra18_defconfig " , then i checked the .config file which didnt include the line in .config file .
so My question would be how do i include the driver in configuration so it get compiled .
