Thanks for the link, Sebastian. Used it, and even had video for a
little while. Today, I found this link:
It calls for moving the uvcvideo.ko file:
"The webcam audio interface must be initialised before the video
interface. Linux will by default initialise the video interface first,
so you need to remove the uvcvideo.ko module from the /lib/modules
subdirectory where it gets loaded automatically, and load it manually
after plugging the webcam."
I'm now trying to find out how and where and what steps I take to do this.
1] Move uvcvideo.ko to /home/tom/temp/uvcvideo.ko
2] Plug webcam in, and reboot
3] Load module manually ???? Don't know what command to run to do
this. Do you?
It also says I can add the line, but don't know where, as there's no
modprobe.conf.local file in my FC8 system.
Just add the following line to your //etc/modprobe.conf.local/ :
install uvcvideo /sbin/modprobe snd_usb_audio; /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install uvcvideo
