I'm trying to make a webcam work under my slack10.2/2.6.18
In fact is a so cheap cam, that it doesn't even have any label.
I discover that the driver (probably) is the sn9c102.
the point is that, according to:
if I don't have a /dev/video0 node, I have to create it with
coz I don't have it, I follow such recipe with the commands:
mknod /dev/video0 c 81 0;chown root.users /dev/video*;chmod g+rw /dev/video0
but xawtv continue complainin' there's no /dev/video0 device.
So, I reboot waiting the new node becomes 'visible' to the system.. but when I do so, /dev/video0 doesn't exist anymore! It disappear after rebooting. is that normal? am I forgetting any command?
any idea what's wrong, or what should I do to have an operating video device node?
thanks in advance
