Linux iSight Drivers?
 
Is anyone working on writing linux compatible drivers for Apple's iSight firewire webcam? Or better yet, are there any existing linux drivers that would work with, or be easily adapted to work with iSight?
Desperate and in denial,

Hmmm. I found a different generic driver at http://www-2.cs.cmu.edu/~iwan/1394/
Using this driver, I got MUCH better control and eventually a picture that I could recognize!! And in fact this worked even when i switched back to the 9v/1.1A power adapter. However:

1) there is still a problem with the horizontal sycn -- the top band of the picture appears in the bottom band of the window

2) there is very visible jitter and flicker in the picture.

3) Windows Messenger no longer recognizes that there is a camera attached to the PC.

-- just trying to help"

good luck.
