That's true. Before mandrake 8.2 I also tried gatos drivers and they were
still crashing with bttv, so I guess that someon on mdk solved the problem
somehow. Btw, the driver I use is the default one installed by mandrake
8.2 , I didn't have to look around for any other.

I am really quite busy now, so I can't investigate further. If you
discover how mandrake fixed this it would be useful to post it to xpert I
