SPCA50X USB Camera Linux Driver


I have a Logitech ClickSmart 510 webcam.
I am trying to get it work with Linux but without success.

When I do "tail -F /var/log/syslog" and plug in / unplyg the USB camera I get the following message:

Sep 29 23:08:32 mother kernel: Linux video capture interface: v1.00
Sep 29 23:08:48 mother kernel: usb.c: USB disconnect on device 00:07.2-2 address 4

The driver doesn't claim the device.

Here is more information about the system:

"uname -r" : 2.4.21-0.13mdk

Any idea?

Get an updated driver from here.

As you are running a 0.30 release, you have a very old driver. Michel Xhaard has up-to-date drivers for the spca50x chipsets, as the driver is at 0.51 and actively being maintained...
