I'm playing with a built-in webcam here, a Sonix Technology Co CNF9055 with usb-ID 04f2:b1d6. This ID isn't listed in the webcamd man pages, but the camera does work... sort of.
If I run webcamd in the foreground, about 7-8 times out of 10, I get: # /usr/local/sbin/webcamd -d 3.3 -i 0 Attached ugen3.3 to cuse unit 0 Creating /dev/video0 And the video works. Cool! But sometimes, about 25% of the time, it hangs at: # /usr/local/sbin/webcamd -d 3.3 -i 0 Attached ugen3.3 to cuse unit 0 with no creation of the video device. If I run it in the background, it fails 100% of the time: # /usr/local/sbin/webcamd -B -d 3.3 -i 0 Attached ugen3.3 to cuse unit -1 # which also means it fails to start if webcamd is started from its rc.d script at boot time. Webcamd version is 0.1.23, cuse is 0.1.13. System is 8.2-release amd64. ugen3.3: <CNF9055 Sonix Technology Co., Ltd.> at usbus3, cfg=0 md=HOST spd=HIGH (480Mbps) pwr=ON bLength = 0x0012 bDescriptorType = 0x0001 bcdUSB = 0x0200 bDeviceClass = 0x00ef bDeviceSubClass = 0x0002 bDeviceProtocol = 0x0001 bMaxPacketSize0 = 0x0040 idVendor = 0x04f2 idProduct = 0xb1d6 bcdDevice = 0x2613 iManufacturer = 0x0002 <Sonix Technology Co., Ltd.> iProduct = 0x0001 <CNF9055> iSerialNumber = 0x0000 <no string> bNumConfigurations = 0x0001 What other info can I provide to debug this? -jr _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-usb To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-usb-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
