Description Andrew Travneff 2012-01-26 11:17:33 UTC
Kernel is built without radio support (CONFIG_RADIO_ADAPTERS is not set). 
Such support was present in previous builds (3.1.9-1), for example.

Kernel version:
$ uname -imorpv
3.2.1-3.fc16.x86_64 #1 SMP Mon Jan 23 15:36:17 UTC 2012 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Comment 1 Andrew Travneff 2012-02-10 11:07:18 UTC
Temporary workaround may be building just the needed module by yourself using custom makefile and linux kernel sources (same version with kernel you use).
For example (using SI470 USB device): go to drivers/media/radio/si470x folder and run a following commands there.

$ git checkout v3.2  # assuming it is a vanilla source cloned by git and currently loaded kernel is 3.2.*

$ mv Makefile Makefile.bak

$ echo -e '
radio-usb-si470x-objs := radio-si470x-usb.o radio-si470x-common.o

obj-m += radio-usb-si470x.o

KERNELDIR := /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build



\trm -rf *.ko *.o *.cmd .*.o.d .tmp_versions Module.* modules.order
' > Makefile

$ make

$ sudo mv -iv radio-usb-si470x.ko /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/drivers/media/

$ sudo depmod -A

$ sudo modprobe radio-usb-si470x
