Hello, I am on a mandriva 2006 computer and I have a usb webcam with built in microphone support. I don't need the video, but I do need the microphone support. I can plug it and gnome meeting will recognise "usb camera", but when i speak into it, garbage is printed out.
When I run lsusb i get:
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 002 Device 005: ID 05a9:8519 OmniVision Technologies, Inc.
Bus 002 Device 004: ID 058f:9360 Alcor Micro Corp.
Bus 002 Device 003: ID 1241:1177 Belkin F8E842-DL Mouse
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 0461:0347 Primax Electronics, Ltd Primascan Colorodao 2600u/Visioneer 4400 Scanner
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
I'm pretty sure that
"Bus 002 Device 005: ID 05a9:8519 OmniVision Technologies, Inc."
is my camera. In fact, i am sure as when I remove it that entry goes away.
So does anyone know how i can get the microphone to work?I think I need the "ov51x driver" but I'm not sure where to get or install it.
uname -a gives:
Linux localhost 2.6.12-14mdk #1 Tue Dec 20 15:45:27 MST 2005 i686 AMD Athlon(tm) 64 Processor 3200+ unknown GNU/Linux
Thanks for any help.
