Question IBM PC Camera (USB)


I'm having trouble finding drivers for my IBM PC Camera... Anyways, what does the following command mean:


cat /proc/bus/usb/devices


It returns the following:


[root@localhost root]# cat /proc/bus/usb/devices
T: Bus=01 Lev=00 Prnt=00 Port=00 Cnt=00 Dev#= 1 Spd=12 MxCh= 2
B: Alloc= 0/900 us ( 0%), #Int= 0, #Iso= 0
D: Ver= 1.00 Cls=09(hub ) Sub=00 Prot=00 MxPS= 8 #Cfgs= 1
P: Vendor=0000 ProdID=0000 Rev= 0.00
S: Product=USB UHCI Root Hub
S: SerialNumber=1820
C:* #Ifs= 1 Cfg#= 1 Atr=40 MxPwr= 0mA
I: If#= 0 Alt= 0 #EPs= 1 Cls=09(hub ) Sub=00 Prot=00 Driver=hub
E: Ad=81(I) Atr=03(Int.) MxPS= 8 Ivl=255ms
T: Bus=01 Lev=01 Prnt=01 Port=01 Cnt=01 Dev#= 2 Spd=12 MxCh= 0
D: Ver= 1.01 Cls=ff(vend.) Sub=ff Prot=ff MxPS= 8 #Cfgs= 1

S: Product=USB IMAGING DEVICE
C:* #Ifs= 2 Cfg#= 1 Atr=80 MxPwr=500mA
I: If#= 0 Alt= 0 #EPs= 1 Cls=ff(vend.) Sub=ff Prot=ff Driver=ibmcam
E: Ad=81(I) Atr=01(Isoc) MxPS= 0 Ivl=1ms
I: If#= 0 Alt= 1 #EPs= 1 Cls=ff(vend.) Sub=ff Prot=ff Driver=ibmcam
E: Ad=81(I) Atr=01(Isoc) MxPS=1022 Ivl=1ms
I: If#= 1 Alt= 0 #EPs= 1 Cls=ff(vend.) Sub=ff Prot=ff Driver=(none)
E: Ad=82(I) Atr=02(Bulk) MxPS= 0 Ivl=0ms
I: If#= 1 Alt= 1 #EPs= 1 Cls=ff(vend.) Sub=ff Prot=ff Driver=(none)
E: Ad=82(I) Atr=02(Bulk) MxPS=1022 Ivl=0ms
[root@localhost root]#


Obviously, its something to do with the physical properties of my USB cam. I found one driver that I'm not sure will work with my cam or not. The driver descriptor for "IBM PC CAMERA ( 0545:8080 )" found at http://www.qbik.ch/usb/devices/showdescr.php?id=70 is:


T: Bus=02 Lev=01 Prnt=01 Port=01 Cnt=02 Dev#= 3 Spd=12 MxCh= 0
D: Ver= 1.01 Cls=ff(vend.) Sub=ff Prot=ff MxPS= 8 #Cfgs= 1
P: Vendor=0545 ProdID=8080 Rev= 3.0a
S: Product=USB IMAGING DEVICE
C:* #Ifs= 2 Cfg#= 1 Atr=80 MxPwr=500mA
I: If#= 0 Alt= 0 #EPs= 1 Cls=ff(vend.) Sub=ff Prot=ff Driver=(none)
E: Ad=81(I) Atr=01(Isoc) MxPS= 0 Ivl= 1ms
I: If#= 0 Alt= 1 #EPs= 1 Cls=ff(vend.) Sub=ff Prot=ff Driver=(none)
E: Ad=81(I) Atr=01(Isoc) MxPS=1022 Ivl= 1ms
I: If#= 1 Alt= 0 #EPs= 1 Cls=ff(vend.) Sub=ff Prot=ff Driver=(none)
E: Ad=82(I) Atr=02(Bulk) MxPS= 0 Ivl= 1ms
I: If#= 1 Alt= 1 #EPs= 1 Cls=ff(vend.) Sub=ff Prot=ff Driver=(none)
E: Ad=82(I) Atr=02(Bulk) MxPS=1022 Ivl= 1ms


The site says its unstable and doesn't work right (http://www.qbik.ch/usb/devices/showdev.php?id=70). Anyone know if I should use this driver or not? Better yet, anyone have a working IBM PC Camera on Linux (RH8 preferrably) or know of a better driver for this USB device? Thanks in advance.

Just try it I suppose. Ask IBM to produce drivers for it as well.

It looks like it's working correctly, after all, in the first list it says ibmcam. All USB digicams are pretty much the same thing, so if you have a generic driver it should work perfect. Do you know how to retrieve your pictures?

Hey Guys.
I am having the same problem with the IBM PC camera. I have another problem . I just discovered that my cam is being recognised by the software Gnome meeting but it is produced some waivering lines on the video transmission area. and i can see the led on the camera glowing at that time.
Any one can show me directions ?.
Thanq in advance.
