Description Inger Karin Haarbye 2001-01-17 18:15:24 UTC
I have kamera kodak dc280, and I use it with usb (dc2xx module - /dev/usb/dc2xx0). After some trouble with selecting device in beta1 and beta2,(bug #23213) I upgraded to gphoto-4.3-10 (rawhide, recompiled src-rpm). I still have problem. When I first time select camera and device, everything is OK, and next time I open gphoto it works - if I don't try to look at the configuration again and press "save". Looks like gphoto then will try to open the device once again, and get the "please chech the permissions" and "failed to open /dev/usb/dc2xx0" error. Now with "strace -eopen gphoto", everything looks OK so far, the last lines: open("/root/.gphoto/gphotorc", O_RDONLY) = 4 open("/dev/usb/dc2xx0", O_RDWR|O_NONBLOCK) = 4 state_machine_set_baud: tcgetattr: Inappropriate ioctl for device Assuming USB connection. Then I try "configuration" - and "save" - and I get: open("/dev/usb/dc2xx0", O_RDWR) = -1 EBUSY (Device or resource busy) open("/dev/usb/dc2xx0", O_RDWR|O_NONBLOCK) = -1 EBUSY (Device or resource busy) state_machine_construct: open: Device or resource busy kdc240_initialize: could not create state machine! Maybe it is nok the right thing to do to press "save" when the configuration is OK already, but anyway, I don't think I like the way gphoto is doing this.

I've had a look at this, and it's basically a bit of a headache to fix. I've reported it to the upstream maintainers.
Comment 2 Inger Karin Haarbye 2001-01-17 19:36:06 UTC
This is working OK in gphoto-4.3-8 in RH7.
Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2001-01-17 19:38:42 UTC
With a USB camera?
Comment 4 Inger Karin Haarbye 2001-01-17 20:04:31 UTC
Yes. I have not seen _this_ bug before... But gphoto is not very stable.
Comment 5 Tim Waugh 2001-01-17 21:45:58 UTC
It may appear to be working in -8, but I expect it will fail if you try it several times in a row.
Comment 6 Tim Waugh 2001-10-19 13:04:03 UTC
Really, the solution will be to switch over to gphoto2 when it is released.
