Pixart webcam problems
 
I 've been having problems with a generic usb webcam that I think is a Pixart Imaging. What I do know for sure though is that it uses a Mars chip.

I installed spca5xx which I thought would work, but didn't.
lsmod gives this output

Code:

videodev                9088  2 usbvideo,spca5xx
So I think I did the spca5xx part right.
The problem is that when I do "tail -f /var/log/messages" it only says:

Code:

Dec 26 17:11:14 linux kernel: usb 1-3: new full speed USB device using ohci_hcd and address 2
I am guessing I used the wrong driver, but being a newbie I'm not really sure...

Any help would most appreciated.

Did you use lsusb to get the vendor id and product id?

Go here to match them for spca5xx http://mxhaard.free.fr/spca5xx.html

you can also find other sites with these id codes for their drivers.

I don't think they have identified all the working cameras but I couldn't get mine to work.
It was a pixart keychain digital camera with a mr97310 chip.
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 093a:010e Pixart Imaging, Inc.
I wish the camera companies would just provide open source drivers.
