I need to bring an old philips usb webcam back to life using the PWC and PWCX drivers on a 2.4 kernel.. I found the PWC driver but the PWCX drivers.. can't find them anywhere they used to be available for download on the webcam nemosoft.. but it seems like they are no longer there anyone have this old driver laying around? File name should be something like pwcx-8.4.tar.gz.I googled it but little luck so far..
The Fedora 14 (and 13) pwc Philips Webcam Driver.is only supporting 160x120 resolution (and nothing higher such as 640x480). Also not supporting some other things correctly, I suspect.I say so having tested multiple web camera software and either they don't work (because they have no setting for low res) or they do work if settable to low res., but not for any higher res.I also have a working setpwc tool which shows the driver does not support framerate resetting.I have a Toucam and Toucam Pro - same for both.Also these units worked fine under Fedora 11, and under earlier versions even Red Hat 4.But I usually got the latest pwc from Saillaird.org and compiled it to get full support but there are no more current sources there anymore, and the older ones don't compile.But as I am saying under F11 it was fully correct, now under F13 and 14 it is broken.
I have a Philips webcam I would like to get to work with a proper driver on Ubuntu 10.04. It will work under a generic driver on programs such as Skype, but as soon as I try to use it for web cam sites such as BlogTV, it will say "Webcam required on this site."I have seen similar posts on this and other websites, pointing towards SPCA, but everything I have tried has not worked.When trying SPCA, I tried to do install on the terminal and all that would happen is terminal would respond with: "0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 1 not upgraded."Is there an easier method I am missing here, or is there something am I doing wrong?
Last week I got a newer kernel via Yast -> Online Update. Since then, my Logitech webcam does not work anymore. Neither with Skype or Kopete. After starting skype, the output of dmesg is:
gspca: bandwidth not wide enough - trying again ohci_hcd 0000:00:12.0: leak ed f44e30c0 (#81) state 2
When I unplug the webcam and plug it into another USB-port and start skype again, it works most of the time. Sometimes I have to repeat this several times. Wen it works, the output of dmesg is:
usb 7-4: new full speed USB device using ohci_hcd and address 2 usb 7-4: New USB device found, idVendor=046d, idProduct=092f usb 7-4: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=0 usb 7-4: Product: Camera
ov51x-jpeg rpm was available for opensuse 11.0 and previous versions. I fail to find it for 11.1. My webcam requires it (IIRC it is a creative webcam ... if anybody requires details I can pull it out of my basement).I am comfortable with command-line, however I would prefer not to compile the source code (I am not familiar with compiling kernel modules )
I installed fuppes from Index of /repositories/home:/bastianfriedrich/openSUSE_11.3 fuppes is a DLNA server and it is listed in the documentation of my Philips TV. I read the wiki on Main Page - FUPPES and as far as I understood followed the manual. However on the server I see the database filled with files, I see the TV listed amoung the devices, however the TV does not connect to the server.
On my Ubuntu (10.04) system, the Ativa SMP-6AS webcam has worked out of the box. On a minimalistic (no gui) Debian Lenny system, it only creates devices for audio (/dev/audio1, /dev/dsp1, /dev/mixer1), but no corresponding /dev/video0 (like it does on Ubuntu). How do I find out what driver it's using on the Ubuntu system so I can install it on the Debian?
I am migrating to Ubuntu and so far I find it superior. But there are a few things that are a little difficult to grasp. The installation of a webcam driver is intricate. I've downloaded the driver ov511-1.65.tar.gz which is applicable to my old and faithful Creative webcam. From [URL] I got the OV511 Installation Instructions:
But I fail at the first step, to become root. This is what I get:
Code: coco@coco-desktop:~$ su Contrasea: su: Fallo de autenticacin coco@coco-desktop:~$
I tried several times and wrote the password I use to start the session, the only one I have. It doesn't help that you are blind to the results of typing, but I tried again and again. I can't be that wrong always.
I am pretty concerned with my build-in webcam. The problem is, that it does not work properly and I guess that the driver crashes my interrups to access it. The result is, that my system is damn slow, almost unusable. In previous issues of Fedora, I was able to un-install the gspca driver and the system worked fine again. Now, I cannot find this driver - so where is it gone?
The microdia driver although notprovided by the manufacturer or ubuntu was available online and supported upto 9.10...but not instead of supporting it natively the support has been completely removed...i am able to compile the driver but it doesnt get inserteda complaint was also made on the launchpad bugs section and the ubuntu brainstorm page also but no action seems to have taken.....
I did some research on both Mic and Webcam, but nothing for the mic seems to work, and I can't seem to find decent instructions for installing the spca5xx driver for my webcam. lsusb result for my webcam: Bus 001 Device 002: ID 04fc:0561 Sunplus Technology Co., Ltd Flexcam 100
My mic, on the otherhand, doesn't seem to be nothing too special. It plugs into the back of the computer right next to the speakers. I've searched everywhere for how to fix these, but can't seem to find anything that works. As for my mic, I've tried installing the... linux modules backport, etc... through synaptic, nothing. I've gone through alsamixer, and sound properties. The only thing I can think of, is that the computer isn't reading my mic.
Sorry if this post is kind of scattered, but I've gotten 2 hours of sleep last night, and not able to sleep again, Also, if anyone can point me in a direction of IM services that allow AIM, MSN, and YIM chat support through my friends on the windows OS. I've heard of Skype, but I don't want to seem too demanding to ask them all to download a program just to speak with / see me.
it reminds me a lot of my good old days on the Unix mainframes...... I have a little problem everything works great except for my Philips GearGo MP3, when I plug it in it is not recognized on the system, my camera works, mys USB hard drive and Palm all work ok.
Im trying to connect my webcam (Trust 16175) to a Debian 5 box:
And with no luck - as I see it the correct driver is not loaded - Using "modprobe gspca" makes no different. I have seen in some papers that the 093a:2621 is supported by gspca. How do I get it to work?
Just bought this monitor and it doesnt have widescreen support like my old Dell one but the crystal display in it is leaking across the screen. Maybe its just too new or something. I have little experience in configuring Xorg.conf although I'm pretty adept in other areas of Linux. Running ubuntu 11.04 gnome not unity or gnome-shell. The resolution is 1920x1080 (16:9), 60 Hz. with the default recommended nvidia driver. Maybe ran into the same situation or knows how to configure X.
I have a Philips SNU5600 wifi dongle. My wifi network isn't particularly strong, but it has always been reliable, even when downloading and uploading large files such as ISOs to the internet.
I recently bought a NAS, and when I run rsync or try and copy a large file (eg 6 gigs) to the NAS, the connection will eventually fail.
The error message in /var/log/debug is:
I have read elsewhere that this is a problem with the Minstrel algorithm, so I have tried disabling that by creating /etc/modprobe.d/80211.conf with the following line in it:
And when I reboot, I am able to run "cat /sys/module/mac80211/parameters/ieee80211_default_rc_algo" and the output is "pid".
However, in my /var/log/debug, there is still the line:
Here is the output from a few other commands for extra information:
- The problem has only been around since I got the NAS, and only happens when copying files TO the NAS. Downloading/uploading to internet doesn't cause the same problem. - This problem happens on two machines both with the same wifi dongle. - This problem doesn't happen on a laptop running the Intel iwl3945 driver, nor with machines connected via cables, so it is not the NAS which is at fault.
I am new here and I have tried checking similar threads as well as other sources in the net but could not get my card working. I use Debian squeeze on a P4 2.4MHz machine with 2 GB ram. lspci can detect all 8 chips but could not load the proper module since it could not identify the vendor. I have tried unloading the SAA7134 module and reloading repeatedly all possible cards from 1 to 174 by "modprobe -i SAA7134 card=#,#,#,#,#,#,#,# #-numbers 1 to 174 one a a time.

I have a problem making work a webcam. At the begining, after the instalation of 10.04 in a new laptop, the webcam did not work but with a lsusb I see that the webcam was Webcam 5986:0241 acer. I was not able to config neither use the webcam with any application. After lots of test and forums reading I could not do my webcam to work, and now when I do a lsusb my webcam does not appear.
