webcam issue (ov51x) could not open device
i've installed the ov51x driver for my ov530 webcam and am attempting to get a jpeg from it.
i run the command
./getjpeg -d /dev/video0 -s 640x480 -o test.jpg
and recieve the error message
Could not open device /dev/video0
the command dmesg says there is a usb device recognized
usb 2-2: new full speed USB device usign uhci_hcd and address 2
usbcore: registered new driver snd-usb-audio
I have followed all the instructions outlined at http://www.ovcam.org/ov511/install.html
and that all seemed to work fine, but it can't seem to find my camera at /dev/video0 and I checked my distro, it's not one of the ones that has /dev/video as a directory.
Any body have any ideas?
