Default webcam and fc8 troubleshooting

I am running fc8, received gift of Quickcam Pro 9000, and need help
troubleshooting it. No response coming out of forum, so need to expand
options.

I need to run list of commands to identify what is happening, like
lsusb, etc. Any help to figure out, whether I'm set up, and camera is
faulty.

Hi,

I own the same camera, but currently I'm using it on another computer.
Have you already had a look at this [1]? I'm not sure whether it works
and I won't guarantee it, but in the future, I might also take a try.

Thanks for the link, Sebastian. Used it, and even had video for a
little while. Today, I found this link:

http://openfacts.berlios.de/index-en.phtml?title=Linux+UVC

It calls for moving the uvcvideo.ko file:
"The webcam audio interface must be initialised before the video
interface. Linux will by default initialise the video interface first,
so you need to remove the uvcvideo.ko module from the /lib/modules
subdirectory where it gets loaded automatically, and load it manually
after plugging the webcam."


I'm now trying to find out how and where and what steps I take to do this.
1] Move uvcvideo.ko to /home/tom/temp/uvcvideo.ko
2] Plug webcam in, and reboot
3] Load module manually ???? Don't know what command to run to do
this. Do you?


It also says I can add the line, but don't know where, as there's no
modprobe.conf.local file in my FC8 system.


Just add the following line to your //etc/modprobe.conf.local/ :

install uvcvideo /sbin/modprobe snd_usb_audio; /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install uvcvideo

Brian: Thanks for the link. I'm working with:
http://openfacts.berlios.de/index-en.phtml?title=Linux+UVC
now. In the meantime, looks like I installed when booted to PAE kernel,
and was trying to run luvcview with planetccrma kernel. The video is
working when in PAE kernel. I'll now try to get steps to control module
loading and unloading (seems audio needs to load before video).

Thanks, Tom

i would have thought that provided the modules are in the correct place
that the kernel would be able to load them automatically.


Glad you are making some progress though.

Is uvcvideo included in fedora these days? I've been building it
myself for a long time now, so I might not have noticed it getting
included :-).

its not in fedora. ... from what I have read uvcvideo is in development
as an addition to the kernel .. maybe its slated for a later kernel release.


until it gets in the kernel i would think it unlikely fedora will have it
