    Arrow webcam driver


    hello
    I am using Ubuntu 7.10 (Kernel 2.6)
    and I can't make my webcam get working
    it's a Clone 11089 (brazilian company)

    in lsusb appear like that:
    0c45:612e Microdia

    I've searched Google a lot and tried a lot of drivers, but without success.
    and, with things I have found, it seems a lot of people are having problems with this webcam on Linux

    thanks in advance

    Take a look at the Gentoo Wiki. It shows how to do a cam step by step. Also, print your Kernel Config file here.

    Cheers,

    thanks for the advice... but didn't work
    I tried this gentoo-wiki:
    HOWTO Install a webcam - Gentoo Linux Wiki

    tried some of the possible drivers, but no life signal...

    and... where is the kernel config file, so I can post it here?

    The Kernel Config is:
    /usr/src/linux/config
    but if you dont know what it is I think you dont have it.
    Since you didnt compile your own kernel then

    If you do compile your own kernel you will see some settings you have to enable bnefore being able to get Webcam support

    in fact, this file does not exist here hehe

    but... do I REALLY have to compile my kernel just to get the webcam support?
    Ubuntu 7.10 doesn't already come with this support enabled by default?
    because I tested other webcam, and worked perfectly... it's something strange with this one
