Internal Laptop Webcam Partially Recognized

Hello, everybody, and thanks first off for your time.

I have a Dell Inspiron 1521, here's the pci info:

[bluestone@localhost ~]$ /sbin/lspci
00:00.0 Host bridge: ATI Technologies Inc RS690 Host Bridge
00:01.0 PCI bridge: ATI Technologies Inc RS690 PCI to PCI Bridge (Internal gfx)
00:05.0 PCI bridge: ATI Technologies Inc Unknown device 7915
00:07.0 PCI bridge: ATI Technologies Inc RS690 PCI to PCI Bridge (PCI Express Port 3)
00:12.0 SATA controller: ATI Technologies Inc SB600 Non-Raid-5 SATA
00:13.0 USB Controller: ATI Technologies Inc SB600 USB (OHCI0)
00:13.1 USB Controller: ATI Technologies Inc SB600 USB (OHCI1)
00:13.2 USB Controller: ATI Technologies Inc SB600 USB (OHCI2)
00:13.3 USB Controller: ATI Technologies Inc SB600 USB (OHCI3)
00:13.4 USB Controller: ATI Technologies Inc SB600 USB (OHCI4)
00:13.5 USB Controller: ATI Technologies Inc SB600 USB Controller (EHCI)
00:14.0 SMBus: ATI Technologies Inc SBx00 SMBus Controller (rev 14)
00:14.1 IDE interface: ATI Technologies Inc SB600 IDE
00:14.2 Audio device: ATI Technologies Inc SBx00 Azalia
00:14.3 ISA bridge: ATI Technologies Inc SB600 PCI to LPC Bridge
00:14.4 PCI bridge: ATI Technologies Inc SBx00 PCI to PCI Bridge
00:18.0 Host bridge: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] K8 [Athlon64/Opteron] HyperTransport Technology Configuration
00:18.1 Host bridge: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] K8 [Athlon64/Opteron] Address Map
00:18.2 Host bridge: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] K8 [Athlon64/Opteron] DRAM Controller
00:18.3 Host bridge: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] K8 [Athlon64/Opteron] Miscellaneous Control
01:05.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc RS690M [Radeon X1200 Series]
03:00.0 Ethernet controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4401-B0 100Base-TX (rev 02)

03:01.1 SD Host controller: Ricoh Co Ltd R5C822 SD/SDIO/MMC/MS/MSPro Host Adapter (rev 22)
03:01.2 System peripheral: Ricoh Co Ltd R5C592 Memory Stick Bus Host Adapter (rev 12)
03:01.3 System peripheral: Ricoh Co Ltd xD-Picture Card Controller (rev 12)
0b:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4310 USB Controller (rev 01)

It has many nifty things I'm not worried about but what would be nice is if I could take a snapshot. At boot dev makes the light flash on the webcam which I think means it's at least probing the hardware but I don't see it in PCI specifically. Maybe on the usb bus?

[bluestone@localhost ~]$ /sbin/lsusb
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 05a9:2640 OmniVision Technologies, Inc.
Bus 001 Device 007: ID 03f0:5411 Hewlett-Packard

Bus 004 Device 001: ID 0000:0000

Bus 002 Device 002: ID 046d:c03d Logitech, Inc. M-BT69a Pilot Optical Mouse
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 0000:0000

I don't know what OmniVision Tech. device is.

Any advice greatly appreciated.

thanks, loodpool,

(I installed the driver you suggested and had the same response as what I found out below

I found that the device needs the uvc driver from v4l2-tool. I had to "make" and "make install" the driver as root so I think I may just have a permissions issue. The camera comes up but just a black screen.

Again, much appreciated,
Ward

Hi,

You may want to look at this thread :

http://forums.fedoraforum.org/forum/...d.php?t=171959

I use the uvc module for my webcam but I noticed it doesnt work in some applications like cheese i.e.

With which application did you try your webcam ?

Cheers.

gert

Thanks gert, very helpful. Everything works for me just as it did for you.

I tried cheese first then camstream then camE. None worked but this is very cool. I'll have to find the Skype 2.0 beta and check it out.

Thanks, again.
