Webcam sensor image not detected
I am trying to resolve why I was getting a bootup message complaining that for my webcam (encore express 0xc45/0x60fc) it could not detect an image sensor.
I am running 12.0 on a KT4V-L mobo w/ AMD 2200+ CPU.
I checked syslog/messages/dmesg and found that a bootup on 29th had no "no image sensor detected" message in syslog but the previous and following bootups have the message. I ran to /usr and found documentation on sn9c1xx, which is what I thought might need upgrading but the documentation for 1.34 says it fully supports my camera.
I also see in the sn9c1xx doc there is compression and format options to call via ioctl that would tell me if those were set correctly for the camera.
I am really confused now since I only the bootup error when it feels like it. I am fairly certain I took no direct action that would have reasonably caused this. Any help here?
Also need a little help with using ioctl calls as there is something the documentation refers to that must be done before using these commands. If someone has experience with these get commands I would appreciate getting help on the proper way to invoke these commands.
