Fedora :: Webcam Does Not Work - Xawtv Package Error

Jun 18, 2010

I have a standard Fedora 13 system where it is runnign fine, there it uses the uvcvideo kernel module and gives me a picture in resolution 640x480. Then I have a second system, based on Fedora 8, stripped down to a minimum size (it is working as headless system) and with a self-made kernel that has compiled in i2c-core, v4l1, v4l2 and uvcvideo. There the webcam does not work, as soon as I try to access it with "webcam" of xawtv package I get an error


Beside of that v4l-info tells me, that it can handle a resolution of 176x144 only (instead of 640x480). Beside the difference of the resolution the output of v4l-info is identical on both systems.

Software :: Dpkg - Add / Remove Package Won't Work - Terminal Goes: Bash Syntax Error Near Unexpected Token `newline'

Mar 11, 2010

When I am adding removing packages to get more hard drive space, this is not the first time I left too many pages open and it crashes on me. My son would fix it by typing in the terminal sudo something, but I want to know how to do this. The only thing not working is the add/remove packages at the moment. Here is what it said, E:dpkg was interrupted you must manually run 'dpkg--configure -a' to correct the problem E: _cache-open()failed please report. Please, could someone tell me how to get the default back or whatever. When I type in the terminal, it refused my password until I tried several times, plus, it finally says in the terminal No such command. Bash. No such command. I am hoping this question is one you do recognize the answer for.

I tried using Yum to remove the package. Like this:

To remove or uninstall a package:


yum -y remove ,package name>

Terminal goes: Bash syntax error near unexpected token `newline'

Fedora :: Error: Package Requirements (cairo >= 1.6.0) Were Not Met: No Package 'cairo' Found

May 24, 2010

Today I was using Gchempaint (part of Gnome Chemistry Tools) and found that the F12 version fails miserably to correctly export H to xyz. So I decided to install the latest version I found (0.11). There are, however, some problems I must sort out during compilation.

Apparently it does not see my 'cairo' installation and so I get the following error message:


checking for cairo... configure: error: Package requirements (cairo >= 1.6.0) were not met: No package 'cairo' found

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you installed software in a non-standard prefix.Alternatively, you may set the environment variables cairo_CFLAGS and cairo_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config. See the pkg-config man page for more details.

Fedora :: How Does Package Manager Work

May 31, 2011

I've been a Gentoo user for several years now, but the maintenance costs (time) of keeping a Gentoo system up-to-date are getting to be a bit much. I've heard good things about Fedora.I have some questions:

1. How does the package manager work? Do I need repository URLs?
2. How does support for patented codecs work?
3. Is this a rolling release system?

Software :: Unable To Run Cheese (webcam Tool) - Keep Crashing - Error "Error Decompressing JPEG: Fill_nbits Error"

Jul 8, 2010

I am on Ubuntu Lucid (updated till date). I am using Kernel Linux 2.6.32-24-generic Recently I am not being able to run Cheese (webcam tool). When run it is crashing. Upon starting it from prompt I noticed the following error : libv4lconvert: Error decompressing JPEG: fill_nbits error: need 2 more bits The program 'cheese' received an X Window System error. This probably reflects a bug in the program. The error was 'BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)'.


I checked in Skype and there the webcam is working fine. I tried with Camorama but that always gives an error "Could not connect to /dev/video0, please check connections."

Ubuntu Multimedia :: No Sound In Xawtv

Feb 20, 2010

I have just purchased a PCHDTV 5500 TV card and am trying to get it working with XAWTV. the following is a list of my hardware. EVGA Nvidia Ge Force 9500gt video card Sound Blaster live platinum sound card Q9550 Pentium quad core CPU EP45-UD3R Gigabyte motherboard Sony DVD drive Sony DVD recorder 500 GB Seagate Barracuda sata hard drive

The TV card is hooked up to my Direct TV receiver using svidio and the included cables audio connector is plugged into the line in jack on the sound card. I am using Ubuntu 9.10 and Alasa for sound I down loaded Gnome Alasa mixer and the line in slider is not muted and turned all the way up. if I go into sound preferences to the hardware tab I get two devices the cx23880/1/2/3 pci video and audio decoder(audio port) 1 input analog stereo input and the SB Live! emu10k1 1output/1 input analog stereo duplex.

I am confused shouldn't the TV card be showing an output not a input but there is only the input and off choices in the property field. under the input tab the cx23880/1/2/3 pci video ans audio card has the spot in the radio button and under the output tab the radio button is marked for the SB Live stereo stereo. NOTE: when xawtv is started and the small window pops up there are green vertical bars on the screen with the picture but if I enlarge the window they go away.

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you installed software in a non-standard prefix. Alternatively, you may set the environment variables PURPLE_CFLAGS and PURPLE_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config. See the pkg-config man page for more details. What am I supposed to do from here? I know libpurple is installed but the package "purple" doesn't even exist. The application I'm trying to install is called gFire by the way.

Red Hat / Fedora :: Yum Install Git - Perl Error For Package

Dec 16, 2010

I've used yum (and rpm) for some time now, and have finally run into one of those dependency problem. I am trying to install git (among other programs), and I have reach an empass. Nothing I've tried has worked, and I just know there is a simple solution to this that I just don't know. It all started by skipping a dependency in the past (don't remember the package). I figured there would be something to clean that up, so I just continued.

Here is my output:
Code: # yum install git
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, langpacks, presto, refresh-packagekit, security
Adding en_US to language list
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
Excluding mirror: ftp-stud.fht-esslingen.de
Excluding mirror: wftp.tu-chemnitz.de
* livna: rpm.livna.org
* rpmfusion-free: mirror.hiwaay.net .....
--> Processing Dependency: perl(Error) for package: perl-Git-
--> Finished Dependency Resolution
Error: Package: perl-Git- (updates)
Requires: perl(Error)
Error: Package: git- (updates)
Requires: perl(Error)
You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

If I need to, I could go and download the RPM package and install it that way, but I'd like to get YUM back working properly.
