      if (document.inventory_sys.elements[i].checked == false)

Can anyone help me build a webcam device driver?

Posted 02-03-2009 at 09:45 AM by mcvasant

I've installed Fedora 6 (kernel 2.6.18-1.2798.fc6) on my Acer Aspire 5570 laptop.
It's got an Acer Orbicam webcam on it.I am trying to build a device driver for it as it does not work on its own in Linux.

I've first tried to build a simple "hello world" module as a driver.
Here are the things I did:

Brand-new installation, Asus 9rp laptop: SUSE 11.1. Problem: screen dims, as last step of boot-up. It virtually cannot be seen. New OS looks startlingly good, cannot be enjoyed until fixed.

This must be a KPowersave laptop setting. I fixed it once with PowerDevil...and once i accidentally booted on DC power and the screen stayed bright. When i can face it, i'll have to fix this on DC power.

Meanwhile i've lost my mind, because using cognition for highest Consciousness...and...

I could not leave messages because the answering service could not record anything. Very frustrating considering that it was working great before.
Maybe I messed with some configs as I usually do.
I tested the input through my microphone with KRec; it was all as if I my microphone was dying.

One of the hardest issues to grasp for many Linux newbies is not a Linux issue, rather it's their problem-solving approach.
