Just before I was about to check the webcam with Ubuntu I tried it on another computer... and it worked. To make sure: I copied across the debug build of webcam and it worked with that as well. It certainly is not the software on the webcamd side. cuse4bsd is the same on both computers. Both systems are running different custom kernels but contain the same usb devices (the same as GENERIC). On the computer that works `pwcview -s vga` does not work. I expect that to be a limitation of the device. On the other computer, I tried every USB port and none of them work. The USB controllers are: oh...@pci0:0:11:0: class=0x0c0310 card=0x50041458 chip=0x026d10de rev=0xa3 hdr=0x00 vendor = 'NVIDIA Corporation' device = 'MCP51 USB Controller' class = serial bus subclass = USB eh...@pci0:0:11:1: class=0x0c0320 card=0x50041458 chip=0x026e10de rev=0xa3 hdr=0x00 vendor = 'NVIDIA Corporation' device = 'MCP51 USB Controller' class = serial bus subclass = USB The USB ports do work for umass, u3g and umodem devices. Will the kernel version have an impact, should I upgrade to head? The webcam works with Ubuntu on both computers. David
