Cool Hercules Dualpix HD


Hi!

I'm trying to get my Hercules Dualpix HD webcam work in Ubuntu.

I modprobed ov534 and the webcam is recognized but it's still not working. I have /dev/video0 but dmesg output says the driver uses video device -1. So I'm not sure if the ov534 driver is the right one or if there is a better choice (if any.)
If somebody uses the same cam or have suggestions, please let me know.
Thanks in advance.

ManuTM

The hercules dualpix exchange (o6f8:3005) is uvc compliant but mine is a dualpix HD (06f8:3003), so?
And it's not working yet

OK, I e-mailed people at Hercules and they said:
reference sensor ov9655.
Which is very informative indeed. Too bad I don't have a degree in electronics.

So if somebody knows something about setting up the damned thing, please don't hesitate to let me know.

Thank you.

Ok, it seems there is definitely no linux driver for this hardware at the moment. Maybe later...

There are news (at least for me) about the hercules dualpix hd (06f8-3003.) It's now supported with kernel modules gspca_v4l2 and gspca_ov534 but it seems problems remain. After re-plugging the webcam, I get this from dmesg:
Quote:

[ 1483.737344] 9:2:1: cannot get freq at ep 0x84
Im not sure it it's relevant but I know (from the people at hercules) that sensor id is ov9655 (not ov9657). Does anyone have it's cam working or know a fix or is is a bug in the driver? (I know I've already posted about this before but now this hardware is supposed to be supported so...)
