Hello Bill,

I don't know which version of gspca is included in your kernel.
First, do you use the v4l library when running cheese or skype?
Then, may you get the last video stuff from LinuxTv.org and check if it
works?

Regards.

Re: Lenovo compact webcam 17ef:4802

2010-01-04 Thread Bill Whiting
The gspca module is provided as part of the kernel.  The kernel version 
is 2.6.30-10

The libv4l version is 0.6.3-1

Is there a way that I can display the version of gspca?  I looked in 
dmesg and /var/log/messages but didn't find a version listed.


I think cheese may be using gstreamer.  How can I confirm whether cheese 
or skype are using v4l?

Lenovo compact webcam 17ef:4802

2010-01-03 Thread Bill Whiting

I have not been able to get an image from a Lenovo webcam under Fedora 11.
It reports to the kernel with USB id 17ef:4802 as below:

 kernel: usb 1-3: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 9
 kernel: usb 1-3: New USB device found, idVendor=17ef, idProduct=4802
 kernel: usb 1-3: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=0
 kernel: usb 1-3: Product: Lenovo USB Webcam
 kernel: usb 1-3: Manufacturer: Primax
 kernel: usb 1-3: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
 kernel: gspca: probing 17ef:4802
 kernel: vc032x: check sensor header 20
 kernel: vc032x: Sensor ID 143a (3)
 kernel: vc032x: Find Sensor MI1310_SOC
 kernel: gspca: probe ok

When I try to access the web cam with cheese or skype I get the 
following error in /var/log/messages:

gspca: frame overflow 332800  331776
Sometimes cheese shows an image resolution under the preferences menu 
option.


If the resolution is shown, then cheese will display a black image.

If I run gstreamer-properties from the command line, it complains of 
missing plugins:

gstreamer-properties-Message: Skipping unavailable plugin 'artsdsink'
gstreamer-properties-Message: Skipping unavailable plugin 'esdsink'
gstreamer-properties-Message: Skipping unavailable plugin 'glimagesink'
gstreamer-properties-Message: Skipping unavailable plugin 'v4lmjpegsrc'
gstreamer-properties-Message: Skipping unavailable plugin 'qcamsrc'
gstreamer-properties-Message: Skipping unavailable plugin 'esdmon'

Are these significant?
What package would supply them?
