Description Eli Wapniarski 2008-12-09 15:25:03 EST
Fedora 10 x86_64
kde 4.18
kopete 0.60.81 

I've just opened a bug report at kde regarding kopete. I hope that I've referenced the right kde package.

Anyway, The problem is that recent kernels uses libv4l to access the camera. If kopete is not patched then the application needs to be started with

LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib64/libv4l/v4l1compat.so kopete -caption "%c" %u

I'm hoping that it would be possilbe to get kopete patched so that my camera can run straight out of the box.

The bug report at kde is located at:

Jreznik, you wanted to work on this? What's the status? Can we get that done soon or should we target a later update (a separate kdenetwork update or the 4.2.1 update)?
Comment 6 Jaroslav Reznik 2009-01-26 08:34:24 EST
Later update pls, I have some other work now. I'd like to finish it ASAP but I can't guarantee it.
Comment 7 Kevin Kofler 2009-01-26 10:36:04 EST
Let's take this off the 4.2 blocker then. It can be addressed later, it's not a 4.2 regression.
Comment 8 Jaroslav Reznik 2009-01-26 11:13:48 EST
I've prepared easy patch - not upstreamable but should work, we are testing it with ltinkl - his webcam is affected by this bug.
Comment 9 Steven M. Parrish 2009-04-27 14:28:05 EDT
jreznik any movement on this?
Comment 10 Kevin Kofler 2009-04-27 15:58:13 EDT
We have libv4l support in Kopete since 4.2.0-3.
Comment 11 Jaroslav Reznik 2009-04-28 09:26:45 EDT
We have basic support for libv4l, it's already in upstream.
