    Default WebcamStudio For GNU/Linux

    Hi All
    (I was bored) So I have packaged up WebcamStudio (Its a java app) from;
    WebcamStudio For GNU/Linux

    To complement it I have also added a minor fix to the virtual loopback kernel module to get it to compile for 2.6.34.

    The vloopback modules is available here;
    Index of /repositories/home:/malcolmlewis:/KMP

    WebcamStudio is available here;
    Index of /repositories/home:/malcolmlewis:/Miscellanous

    Note the build service is down for publishing and then the maintenance outage so it will be sometime Saturday or Sunday until you see them appear, so you could search for them as well via;
    software.opensuse.org: Search Results

    Hi
    OK, there was a later version of the loopback module in the src (1.4-trunk) so have now combined as one so don't worry about the KMP repository. You just need webcamstudio and webcamstudio-kmp now.

    I installed this and it seems to work great, but it doesn't show up when I login to tinychat as a device. Even when I close firefox, reopen it NEVER SHOWS UP. I never had this problem on Ubuntu, what's going on?

    I tried that and it said:
    FATAL: Module webcamstudio not found.

    Do you know of what I should do, perhaps install a dependency or somthing of the sort? I really appreciate your response so quick though, I thought nobody would try to help me =)

    PackageKit is blocking zypper. This happens if you have an updater applet or other software management application using PackageKit running.
    Tell PackageKit to quit? [yes/no] (no): yes
    PackageKit is still running (probably busy).

    I guess it's also a bug that everytime I run in Gnome any sort of package manager service, it always says there is a service already running and I have to either 'retry' or kill the PID manually.

    Hi
    The module doesn't match your kernel....

    Code:
    sudo zypper rm webcamstudio-kmp-desktop
    sudo zypper rm webcamstudio-kmp-default
    zypper if webcamstudio-kmp-default
    The last command should show you that it's the same kernel version you
    have running.
