Passing framebuffer address



I need to pass the framebuffer address to v4l, in order to use xawtv with my 
capture card.  I used the recommended command (as root)  'v4l.conf -a 
0xE0000000' but got '-bash: v4l.conf: command not found' in return.  I have 
done this in the past without problems, so I don't understand what's changed. 
I can't simply manually edit v4l, as I haven't a clue where this parameter is 
supposed to go.   

I found this:

-a adr
    Set framebuffer address to adr. The value should be specified in hex. This 
option is allowed for root only. You can't overwrite the autodetected value, 
this switch is only useful if autodetect doesn't work because the X-Server 
lacks DGA support. You can put this into /etc/conf.modules, as "post-install 
bttv ..." for example.

This is exactly what is required.  There is no autodetected value, as far as I 
can see. "v4l-conf is compiled without DGA support"
