I have webcams who need the uvc webcam driver
so i installed the uvc-kmp-default driver from the webcam driver repositorie
reboot and the webcam is working.
But now i have 2 uvcvideo.ko
1 in /lib/modules/126.96.36.199-9-default/kernel/drivers/media/video/uvc
1 in /lib/modules/188.8.131.52-9-default/updates
they are both the same size the one from the kernel is the oldest one
Which one is used during boot??
There is no /dev/video registered to the driver
It’s just a guess, but I think driver in ./184.108.40.206-9-default/updates
substitutes the older one.
ok to be sure i uninstalled the uvc-kpm-default rpm
downloaded the driver from ~pinchartl/uvcvideo: Summary](http://linuxtv.org/hg/~pinchartl/uvcvideo/)
and make makeinstall depmod -aq
the webcam is working better than before
i can even have luvcview full screen
VLC Capture-device gives a stream full screen
Kdetv (kde3) gives a great picture also full screen
Amsn works greet with this webcam
Kopete kde4 sees the webcam but the picture is far to dark
Glad it worked for you!
I didn’t even knew you can see your webcam through VLC.
So luvcview and VLC work in my system as well,
but Kdetv and Kopete don’t.
Maybe, soon will try your solution too.
Thanks for sharing information!
