Comment 1 Nalin Dahyabhai 2001-01-24 18:04:14 UTC
Use /dev/video0 instead (xawtv -c /dev/video0).  The latest devices.txt file has
device nodes inside of the /dev/video directory, so having /dev/video be a
symlink to /dev/video0 is not possible.  This will be fixed in a future version
of the xawtv package.
