Driver for Logitech Quickcam Pro 9000 webcam


Hi
I am working on an ARM based OMAP3530 board having the Android Kernel running on top of it.I have a Logitech Quickcam 9000 Pro webcam.I checked out that Logitech Quickcam Pro 9000 webcam is UVC compatible.So does it mean that,it is sufficient for me to enable the UVC driver for getting my webcam work?If i am wrong,could anyone please tell me what driver must be used for enabling the Logitech Quickcam Pro 9000 webcam?I saw in the "drivers/media/video/uvc/uvc_driver.c" file but,could not see an entry for the Logitech Quickcam Pro 9000 webcam in the supported webacms.Am i having an old UVC Driver?

Thanks & Regards
Ananth

hi

if thats a linux kernel

Code:
lsmod | grep uvc
uvcvideo               60136  0 
videodev               38272  1 uvcvideo
v4l1_compat            14592  2 uvcvideo,videodev
usbcore               152816  5 uvcvideo,usblp,uhci_hcd,ehci_hcd
try with root powers...modprobe uvcvideo and seeing if my codebox command produces similar results...then try out your cam

I've got that webcam and yes, uvcvideo works very nicely with it. I've had no problems at all.

Hi
Thanks for your kind reply.I have compiled the UVC driver statically along with the kernel.During Boot-up i could see the UVC driver getting registered successfully with the usb-core.Once the kernel boots up if i plug in the webcam the usb-core detects my webcam and my webcam's Product ID and Vendor ID are getting displayed.I am using the Logitech Quickcam Pro 9000 and its PID is 0x0990 and Vendor ID is 0x046d.Now when i plug in my webcam the UVC driver's probe fuction should be called but that's not happening.So can you tell me why the probe function is not getting called?

Thanks & Regards
Ananth

I know nothing about android.

were you unable to run command manually?

modprobe uvcvideo

2) Maybe your system has a service not loading? maybe HAL or udev?

run with root powers rcconf and see if you spot any disabled service that should be running.
