Why my Fedora 8 failed to recognize usb camera?


Hi,

I want to setup USB webcam on my Fefora 8 syste. The version is 2.6.21-1.3194.fc7. From my understanding, Fefora8 included the OV511 series usb camera driver supported. My device is aupportted in the device list.

Anyone suggestion?

Thanks in advance.

When you plug the cam in there will appear USB-related messages in your syslog.
Please post that output in BB code tags.
