Re: webcam modules -DebianSlug 3.10beta
- Adding more info -I found the very recent requests for pwc and spa5xx
drivers (was looking too much for ovcamchip specific).
Noting these I also added the compat_ioctl32.
Did depmod -a, checked it loads with modprobe compat_ioctl32 and then
Unfortunately I still can't get it to recognise the ov511 webcam.
dmesg | tail gives on insertion:
usb 3-1.3: new full speed USB device using ohci_hcd and address 8
usb 3-1.3: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
I loaded the modules with modprobe again to check and reinserted.
I've just got this operational on a debianised Linkstation running
220.127.116.11 which from lsmod gives:
ov511 91108 0
compat_ioctl32 1984 1 ov511
videodev 11456 1 ov511
ipv6 337388 20
usbhid 53380 0
-the same webcam having just been removed after successfuly operating.
I'm struggling with this having tried for very many hours and any help
would be very much appreciated.
