UVCvideo webcam (eeepc) not probed with last rawhide kernel from koji
Last modified: 2008-07-31 12:37:17 EDT
Description of problem:
The last kernel available in koji (2.6.26-0.74.rc6.git4.fc10.i686) doesn't
recognize the eeepc webcam (usually the older kernels loaded uvcvideo).
lsmod doesn't show it and obviously, cheese/skype etc doesn't show webcam.
Modprobe uvcvideo doesn't help...
With the current fedora 9 kernel release, webcam works very well and uvcvideo is
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
working uvcvideo module..
Additional info: I attached lsmod + lspci with STABLE KERNEL
Created attachment 309769 [details]
LSMOD + LSPCI (WITH STABLE FEDORA 9 KERNEL)
The uvcvideo patch has been dropped for now, due to it not applying to upstream.
We could rediff it, but it'd probably break again really soon, so it's on the
'to revisit later' list for when we're closer to something we're ready to ship.
uvcvideo is now in mainline, and should be working out of the box in 2.6.26-rc9
in rawhide. Please test that and let us know if that *doesn't* fix things.
