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:
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.
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:
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 :(
Ah, well I dont know about Ubuntu since I always compile my own kernel.
Anyhow, umm if the other did work.
Sorry cant help you :/
