Install Drivers (take pity on a noob)

Ubuntu 14.04

I am trying to install drivers for a TV Tuner device with 6 tuners. I've downloaded the drivers from the Ceton corp website.
The README file is attached but I'm really not sure I'm doing this correctly
So far..
I ran:
  • sudo apt-get install build-essential
  • sudo apt-get install gcc-4.9
  • perlbrew install perl-5.20.1
  • sudo apt-get install linux-kernel-headers kernel-package
Then I opened a terminal window in the extractedceton_infinitv_linux_driver folder.

I then ran:
Code:
make
sudo make install
sudo modprobe ctn91xx
It looks like it failed
This was copied from my terminal window

Code:
Installing ctn91xx driver...
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-3.13.0-43-generic'
  INSTALL /home/zamily84/Downloads/ceton_infinitv_linux_driver/ctn91xx.ko
Can't read private key
  DEPMOD  3.13.0-43-generic
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-3.13.0-43-generic'
cp 98-ctn91xx.rules /etc/udev/rules.d/
/sbin/depmod -a 3.13.0-43-generic
Thanks

Thanks for the links but, I don't think I've gotten that far yet.
I don't think I've successfully installed the drivers yet. I don't see the device in the GUI

I'm more of a Windows guy and am in deep

From what I can see these drivers support kernel 3.8 which is old. Ubuntu 14.04 uses 3.13 and so the drivers may not be supported. I will see if they build on a clean root.

ctntad built fine with the following (Ubuntu 14.04.1 live):
Code:
sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get install libgusb*
libgupnp-1.0-dev  gir1.2-gupnp-1.0
Code:
./configure && make && sudo make install
Though it seems to not work:
Code:
Starting ctntad 0.2.1
Error creating GUsb context: failed to init libusb: Other error [-99]
I got the same results as the OPs with the PCIe driver though the module loads.
I am not sure if that is actually an error.

Code:
[email protected]:~/Downloads/ceton_infinitv_linux_driver$ lsmod | grep ctn
ctn91xx                54093  0

thanks for your reply ryanvade

The apt-get update part seemed to run fine but the ./configure && make && sudo make install threw a bash: ./configure: No such file or directory

Code:
./configure && make && sudo make install

I extracted the ceton_infinitv_linux_driver from the ceton_infinitv_linux_driver_2013_0326_2226.tar.gz file I downloaded from the website into my downloads directory.
I opened a terminal window in the /Downloads/ceton_infinitv_linux_driver directory and ran the code

Here is my output
[email protected]:~/Downloads/ceton_infinitv_linux_driver$ ./configure && make && sudo make install
bash: ./configure: No such file or directory
[email protected]:~/Downloads/ceton_infinitv_linux_driver$ sudo ./configure && make && sudo make install
[sudo] password for zamily84:
sudo: ./configure: command not found

It should have been ctnad-0.2.1 not ceton_infinitv_linux_driver

I'm sorry to be so thick but can you tell me where to find ctnad-0.2.1 ?

you should be able to use the ctntad command as root (with sudo)

OK... I've got the drivers installed (I have dev/dri/card0 and dev/dri/controlD64 files) but, I don't see anything in the DVB Inputs dropdown of the HTS Tvheadend.
Am I missing a step?
