Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 74108
No Snapshots possible
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:03 EDT
Description of Problem:
Normally you can do snapshots/pictures by clicking capital "J" in xawtv.
But in the Null-included version it isn't possible. Maybe because xawtv is
saying "no overlay support" when you start it up from console
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
start xawtv, try to make a snapshot
Steps to Reproduce:
1. start xawtv
2. try to make a snapshot by clicking capital "J"
no snapshot possible/ no file in your home directory
snapshot should be made and put into my home directory
sorry, this problem is specifically attached to making snapshots with a webcam
I use a Logitech Quickcam Express and have therefore compiled an alternative driver.
This worked perfectly with RedHat 7.2 and 7.3 but now it doesn't work anymore..
I can use the webcam but snapshots aren't possible...
maybe because of the missing overlay support, I'm not sure
perhaps the alternative driver for Logitech Quickcam Express does not work
correct with the new kernel in null.
You should contact the author of this driver for fixing this problem.
