Canon Ixus V3 Digital Camera and Red Hat Linux 9


I have a Canon Ixus V3 (USB and CompactFlash) and I can't make the digital camera tool (gtkam) recognize it. When I put in dmesg, I get this message:

divert: not allocating divert_blk for non-ethernet device ppp0
PPP Deflate Compression module registered
hub.c: new USB device 00:02.3-1, assigned address 2
usb.c: USB device 2 (vend/prod 0x4a9/0x3070) is not claimed by any active driver

I know that linux sees the usb ports and the camera because when I trun the camera on and off, the message slightly changes. The problem is that I still can't get the pictures off the camera. Help.

I don't believe that any camera is recognised on bootup, only when you open GtKam, are you sure you installed GtKam correctly, with all the changing of USB permissions and setting up hotplugging etc etc?

Your camera seems to use DCF, so you might be able to access your photos through Konqueror (or any other similar file manager, or the console) by using the method I found to work, which can be accessed here:

Thank you, but there's still a problem. I get this message:

[root@localhost root]# mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 /mnt/camera
mount: /dev/sda1 is not a valid block device

OK, I need to know a bit more about your installation. Please post the output of:

lspci
lsmod
dmesg | grep usb
dmesg | grep scsi

Also, did you install RH with Plug N Play disabled in the BIOS, and is APIC disabled in the BIOS, or through 'noapic' issued as a parameter to the kernel at boot?

The plug and play is enabled. I haven't seen an APIC.

After compiling gphoto2-2.1.1 I saw this message at the end:

configure: error: Library requirements (libgphoto2 >= 2.1.1) not met; consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if your libraries are in a nonstandard prefix so pkg-config can find them.

I compiled libghoto2 before compiling gphoto2. What am I doing wrong?

I don't know about RH, but Mandrake needs Plug N Play turned off in the BIOS for correct hardware device detection during installation. The other thing I notice is that 'usb-storage' is missing from your modules list. Without that, usb won't know how to treat a usb device as a disk, which is how your camera should look to the system.

With your camera plugged in, do you have a listing under /dev for sda and sda1? On mine, they point to scsi/host1/bus0/target0/lun0/disk and scsi/host1/bus0/target0/lun0/part1 respectively. There is an entry under /dev/scsi leading to these, and entries under /dev/sd also pointing to these.

Your usb setup looks OK, except for what looks like errors with a usb device that is trying to attach at seven addresses, but fails. That is most likely your camera.

I would try first to disable the Plug N Play in the BIOS. If you can't do that (or don't want to because you want to leave it that way for another OS) try adding 'pci=bios' to the kernel boot parameter.

Failing that, try adding the usb-storage module by:

modprobe usb-storage

and see if that improves matters.

Also, check if /etc/modules.conf includes the following line:

probeall usb-interface usb-ohci

(it probably has if the other usb modules are installed, but it's worth checking.)

there is a listing under /dev of sda and sda1 but they're recognized as 0 bytes.

the errors are from turning the camera on and off. I'm doing it because the batteries might run out soon even before I make it work.

there isn't a plug and play in the bios of the k7s5a. how can i add pci=bios to the kernel boot parameter?

nothing comes out after doing modprobe usb-storage and this is what appears in /etc/modules.conf after doing modprobe:

alias usb-controller usb-ohci
alias char-major-81 bttv
alias sound-slot-0 i810_audio
post-install sound-slot-0 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -L >/dev/null 2>&1 || :
pre-remove sound-slot-0 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -S >/dev/null 2>&1 || :

there's no probeall usb-interface usb-ohci in it.

It seems that RH is quite different to Mandrake. It might make no difference to have Plug N Play turned off, but you might as well try it. You add 'pci=bios' to the 'append =' line in /etc/lilo.conf. So, if it looks like:

append="quiet devfs=mount hdc=ide-scsi"

edit it to read:

append="quiet pci=bios devfs=mount hdc=ide-scsi"

Then run the command, as root:

lilo

then re-boot your computer. After it restarts, try the method I posted in the link above once more, to see if things improve.

I just bought a cf card reader. Worked like a charm. Thanks for all the help.

No problem. It's a bit of a pity that we couldn't get your camera working with usb, but at least you can access your photos now with the CF reader. It's strange - one usb storage device works, but not the other. Maybe it's the camera that won't cooperate. I also suspect that kernel version might also be another factor (mine is 2.4.21-0.13mdk, whereas yours is 2.4.20). If you ever upgrade your kernel it might be worth checking your camera again.
