I recommend you do not apply 32-bit instructions to a 64-bit installation. You say you were told to do both. Who told you ? What was their logic for that ? IMHO its not good advice.
I also asked this;
I looked and I can not find your answer to that above question. Please confirm.
I noted this in your dmesg. Its obviously reporting an error:
[14016.844944] gspca: no transfer endpoint found
You could look further into dmesg and see if in the lines adjacent to this entry if there are other errors? Also try searching on this error. I’ve seen this error reported with USB errors, where the problem was USB bandwidth. For example, I read one case where after a laptop user unplugged their USB keyboard and mouse (two different devices) from their laptop computer (no hub!) their cam started to work.
I read another case which in the case of limited USB bandwith, suggested
there are 3 possible causes for this:
- You are using the device through an usb 2.0 hub, this should work
but does not work due to a bug in the usb subsystem of the kernel,
which I have reported but most likely won’t be fixed
- Some-one / something is using the mic, which also uses usb bandwidth,
yes probably another usb subsystem bug, atm the mic and camera functions
cannot be used at the same time (something I need to look into)
do “rmmod snd_usb_audio”, and if that fails with a -EBUSY error,
find the culprit (volume control panel applet for example) kill it,
and try again
- Some other device on the same root hub is using bandwidth
but the above were in company with USB errors and you have not reported any (nor possibly examined the dmesg looking for any). Still, if you are trying through a USB hub, try connecting the webcam directly and see if that helps. And if you have other USB devices connected at the same time, remove them and then replug in your webcam and see if a test there works.
If you search on
ERROR: ld.so: object '/usr/lib64/libv4l/v4l1compat.so' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded: ignored.
gspca: no transfer endpoint found
you obtain an entirely different set of suggestions. I saw no clear explanation in those cases but many suggestions.
A small number of the suggestions there revolved around v4l. What do you have installed re: v4l ? ie what is output of:
rpm -qa v4l
For example, with my uvc compatible webcam, I get:
oldcpu@corei7:~> rpm -qa '*v4l*'
your gspca webcam will likely have a different output.
