Description Parag AN(पराग) 2006-07-11 02:26:20 EDT
Spec URL: http://people.redhat.com/pnemade/Spca5xx/spca5xx-kmod.spec SRPM URL: http://people.redhat.com/pnemade/Spca5xx/spca5xx-kmod-20060501-188.8.131.52_1.2133_FC5.src.rpm Description: This is the spca5xx-kmod package that contains spca5xx kernel module. spca5xx is video for linux (v4l) driver, providing support for webcams and digital cameras based on the spca5xx range of chips manufactured by SunPlus Sonix Z-star Vimicro Conexant Etoms Transvision Mars-Semi Pixart. This package requires spca5xx-kmod-common package to be installed prior.
Comment 1 Ralf Corsepius 2006-07-11 02:41:14 EDT
All kernel modules should be named kmod-*, otherwise installers (yum/apt/smart etc.) are likely not to be able to handle them properly.
Comment 2 Ville Skyttä 2006-07-11 02:58:22 EDT
*-kmod is correct for the source package. But see http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/KernelModules , missing "A publishable explanation from the author(s) why the module is not merged with the mainline kernel yet and when it's planned to get merged."
Comment 3 Parag AN(पराग) 2006-07-11 04:29:30 EDT
Ville SkyttÃ¤, Should i have to include publishable explanation from upstream source's Author? If yes then i am going to contact author for that and will include it in package. But where can i add that file in spca5xx-kmod package or in spca5xx-kmod-common package?
Comment 4 Parag AN(पराग) 2006-07-11 05:48:33 EDT
There is one file regarding this i included already in spca5xx-kmod-common and its contents are like this ============================================================================= Dear users, For some strange reason "Luca Risolia" is setting a lot of drivers inside the main Kernel tree, specially those chips supported by spca5xx. Maybe there are not enought hardware to Hack:) As a consequence, you have to choice between spca5xx or the others. The problem is, hotplug will detect, the in kernel driver and maybe reject spca5xx claim. If you load the spca5xx first with modprobe spca5xx there are no problem. You can also blacklist the in kernel driver:) .If you get problem with the main kernel drivers, don't ask me please, you should ask here to get help: email@example.com or here for the v4l2 features :) firstname.lastname@example.org best regards Michel Xhaard http://mxhaard.free.fr ================================================================== But I have not found any problem from this package in FC5 with any 2.6.16 kernels.
Comment 5 Ville Skyttä 2006-07-11 12:44:34 EDT
The explanation is not required in any package (although it doesn't hurt). Its intention is to help FESCO to decide whether the module is appropriate for FE, and it is sufficient to include the explanation in this bug report, see the Wiki page. I think the text in comment 4 does not answer that request.
Comment 6 Parag AN(पराग) 2006-07-12 00:19:15 EDT
Can you tell me what more information here required? Is not the publishable explanation from Author given above is sufficient?
Comment 7 Ville Skyttä 2006-07-12 02:25:20 EDT
Well, it is a publishable explanation, but does not seem to explicitly answer the questions asked from such an explanation (again, see comment 2 and the Wiki): - why the module is not merged with the mainline kernel yet, and - when it's planned to get merged
Comment 8 Parag AN(पराग) 2006-07-12 02:26:48 EDT
I have asked about this to Author and waiting for answer from him.
Comment 9 Parag AN(पराग) 2006-07-13 00:52:42 EDT
I need help i am not able to modprobe kernel module. modprobe spca5xx FATAL: Error inserting spca5xx (/lib/modules/2.6.16-1.2133_FC5/extra/spca5xx.ko): Invalid module format whereas installed driver from this package is at /lib/modules/2.6.16-1.2133_FC5/extra/spca5xx/spca5xx.ko now how can i solve this problem?
Comment 10 Parag AN(पराग) 2006-07-13 01:00:40 EDT
if i do manual module insertion insmod /lib/modules/2.6.16-1.2133_FC5/extra/spca5xx/spca5xx.ko it succeeds
Comment 11 Parag AN(पराग) 2006-09-01 08:56:48 EDT
I don't want to submit this package so want to close this bug
