How do I INstall my WebCam


Hi,
Here is the output from my
'xawtv'
command:

*************************************************************************
This is xawtv-3.74, running on Linux/i686 (2.4.18-14)
can't open /dev/video0: No such device
v4l-conf had some trouble, trying to continue anyway
v4l2: open /dev/video0: No such device
v4l: open /dev/video0: No such device
no video grabber device available
***********************************************************************************

My red hat box says that there is a Intel Easy PC Camera connected to my USB HUb.Now how do I add this to my /dev/video0 device?

Thankx in advance...

Do (as root) "cd /dev/" followed by "./MAKEDEV video" then "chmod 666 video*" (note that the MAKEDEV command is uppercase), then run xawtv again.

which driver you installed for your webcam?
have you checked that your webcam is plugged in and driver is installed before installing xawtv
