Well, I managed to find one of these for less than 50 cents ( Shocked ), so I was wondering if I could somehow get it to work as a webcam under Puppy 4.3.1. Mr. Green

I did find this topic, but the base website link amigo provides for the driver just ends up at a long-since spambot-overrun wiki, and the source code download link buried within all that spam text seems to be a dead link. Sad

Or is there possibly a way to try to get it to work without installing another kernel driver (in other words, does 4.3.1 have any support for any webcams out-of-the-box?).

(Edited, because I didn't know something would trip the word filters...)

Just curious what

Code:
cat /proc/bus/usb/devices

Best I can do for you. Good luck with it Makoto. Maybe some other members can walk you through a install now with the links I gave you in case you need help.

Thanks. Smile I'll try to get around to looking at it. I don't think I have anything around/installed that actually uses a webcam, though, unless Puppy includes something by default (isn't gtkam for regular digital still cameras?).
