Creative Webcam Help


Anytime i start palantir (or any software trying to use webcam) i get the following msg in log file:

drivers/usb/media/ov511.c: Invalid channel (1)

it also tells me :

[video] RGB palette unavailable, using YUV


lsmod|grep video shows me:

video 16197 0
videodev 9665 1 ov511

I have updated the ov511 driver to ov511-2.31.

My system is:

Pentium Celeron 2.4
Fedora Kernel - 2.6.15-1.1831_FC4
webcam - Creative webcam pro mode PD1030


The camera works, but does not show video, just shows a greyish/brown screen.

Any suggestions to get we pointed in the right direction would be appreciated ?

ov51x driver

I solved this problem in ubuntu not sure what the commands for fedora are but maybe you can translate my how to and i will upload a new page for fedora.
anyway here is a link to the how to for ubuntu breezy.
it has something to do with jpeg decompression, and propriety binarys being load into the kernel.
