I used the unofficial KDE 3.5 livecd of 11.1 to install SUSE to my EEE PC 901.
I am having some trouble configuring it though.
The webcam does not work to my knowledge… If someone could help me test this, that would be great.
Bluetooth does not seem to be working, it seems to be present in Yast’s hardware list and it claims to be active and working, but kbluetooth does not acknowledge it.
I am also unable to install the eee kernel module, when I follow the instructions to compile it from source make acts like nothing is there and the precompiled eee.ko refuses to insert giving the error "
insmod: error inserting ‘eee.ko’: -1 Invalid module format
okay, I forgot to mention this according to the EEE wiki I should add these repos…
To activate the camera you first have to turn it on in the BIOS. Then add
and to keep updates
to you repositories and install the "uvcvideo-kmp-default" package. After a reboot the camera should work out of the box (tested with kopete). The camera works in Skype but not in ucview.
but they do not seem to be compatible with my kernel, is there an alternative driver that is compatible with the default 11.1 kernel?
Here’s the error message:
sudo zypper install uvcvideo-kmp-default

Problem: nothing provides kernel(vmlinux) = 2f441c1998015237 needed by uvcvideo-kmp-default-r215_126.96.36.199_31-5.1.i586

Greetings from Guelph. I know you have a 901 but this may help. When I installed OpenSuse 11.1 on my EEE PC 701 all I did extra was install the eee events package from the appleonkel-repository as outlined on the opensuse of the eee webpage. Then, after some updates were downloaded over several days the webcam just started to work on its own in the Cheese program under the Gnome desktop. I assumed a driver for it had been downloaded.
Anyone else experience this?
my bluetooth started working I configured wifi, and almost have the webcam working…
LuvcView gives the following output:
Video driver: x11
A window manager is available
Device path: /dev/video0
Frame format: YUYV (MJPG is not supported by device)
Unable to set format: Device or resource busy
Init v4L2 failed !! exit fatal
Does anyone know what is wrong? The uvcvideo-kmp-default driver is installed and Kopete gives a green screen and recognizes the webcam, but doesn’t give an output format.
Ethernet is not working, but I don’t know the chipset, if someone know the correct module tell me…
Unable to configure the network card because the kernel device (eth0, wlan0) is not present. This is mostly caused by missing firmware (for wlan devices). See dmesg output for details.
Is there a module or firmware that I should use?
The webcam works now but only when I use luvcvie -w to disable SDL any ideas on this?
Also the usual ALSA front mic probelm is occuring… I upgraded to 1.0.19 which claims to fix this but I’m kind of confused with this new Pulse Audio thing. Am I using Pulse instead because the mic only gives static. Anyone have ideas on this?
So the ethernet connection started ok after the modprobe? Can you go
into YaST and see if it’s there, if it’s an unknown device can you add
the module name into the relevant section in the edit screens and
reboot your system.
