    Webcam, what kernel parameter to select?


    I have a "Chicony 1.3M UVC Webcam (Asus G1S notebooks)" webcam, which is supported by Linux UVC [1]. However I'm unable to find the kernel parameter that I should select to compile my kernel to support this device.

    What device should I select?

    Unless there's some reason for compiling, there's a good chance that 'guvcview (UVC + GTK front end) or 'uvcdynctrl' (commandline tool) is in your OS's repo.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    If it is supported, then you should not need to do anything with the kernel to enable it. Have you tried using it? If so, how?
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
