Sub_title: newly installed cam
 

i just installed a webcam from an Eee 900 in my Eee 900A (didn't come with one) but Lucid 528 isn't seeing it. What driver do I need to add?

I guess I'll mention the obvious.

(edit, my bad did not see Puppy 528, still need info from Puppy on camera via link) Puppy Version. Webcam readout. More details maybe?

I should control bios settings about webcam. Then control it's real your kernel does not see the webcam with:

Code:
dmesg|grep Camera


If the above command has positive response but the webcam does not work (example: video not good in skype) try to install libv4l and run skype as:

Code:
LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so skype

There is nothing in my bios about webcams.
I tried that in roxterm but nothing happened, just returned to the terminal prompt.

It can be very verbose but try to launch in terminal only:

Code:
dmesg


Can you read some line about your camera? If you can see reported your camera read the following thread because I think you need only v4lutils:

Copied the results into Abiword to use its search. there is no "webcam" or even "cam" listed anywhere.

You can try several things.
First: can you test another kernel-another puppy in live mode by a usb stick? I suggest slacko 5.6. Your puppy could not have support for your webcam.
Second: I think there could be a hardware problem (did something go wrong installing the webcam? Consider this.)
Third: I have the eepc 701 with built-in webcam and this old pc loads the uvcvideo module. Try this commands in console:

Code:
dmesg|grep UVC


Code:
lsmod|grep uvcvideo


If uvcvideo module is not loaded you could simply have to manual load the kernel-module of your webcam; If the module is the same of the 701 eepc try in console:

Code:
modprobe uvcvideo


Always install v4lutils and use libv4l preload to test the webcam.

Until installing v4lutils I got nothing from those 3 lines. after installing and doing the modprobe uvcvideo, lsmod|grep uvcvideo gave me:
uvcvideo 44782 0
videodev 27339 1 uvcvideo
v4l1_compat 9930 2 uvcvideo,videodev
usbcore 91279 6 uvcvideo,usbhid,uhci_hcd,usb_storage,ehci_hcd

I used to own one that had the 2 ssd internal hard drives and a webcam.

Did you wire this new camera through the usb pin header on your mother board or what?

Usually lsusb -t shows camera and driver, Mine in another netbook using Slack0 5.6. This is not a eeepc though.

You can load a driver for a webcam. But it will be useless if there is no
hardware detected anywhere that a webcam is installed.
Most webcams are usb internally connected.
Maybe the ebay one was broken that was sold to you.

I just bought a AMD CPU 4400 Brisbane that just toasted my mobo on my Micro ATX bos from ebay. I am kinda upset about that. The seller offered a replacement board. I am just plain disgusted. It can be like a crap shoot on ebay. Sometimes you get a really good deal and you are happy.

Then you get that 1 rare instance like mine. The seller is a good person and seller. The part tested good for him. All I got was no screen found on power up after getting it in the mail. It froze my board up after a second test. Bad spots in the universe happen from time to time.

Until you can find that webcam you installed via menu>system>any of the tools in there. Post your findings. Then no usb webcam got installed.

Your webcam should be supported by the uvcvideo driver, which Lucid 5.28 already contains.
Puppy should automatically detect the webcam, and automatically load the uvcvideo driver - if you have to manually load it, this indicates problems at hardware level (as rokytnji mentioned).

I suggest you check your bios. Even though you say there's no listing for "webcam" there are other settings which affect webcam recognition. See here -
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EeePC/Fixes#Webcam

Failing all else, run this command to enable the webcam -
Code:
echo "1" > /sys/devices/platform/eeepc/camera


Then check your webcam with a simple application like guvcviewer, before moving on to Skype. Skype is a whole new can of worms.

I found my problem was with the hardware. I ordered another webcam and that one works (at least in Skype's test, I haven't found anything else to test it with yet, can't find a twain acquire in Gimp yet).

Now, can someone suggest a webcam software?

There is nothing in my bios about webcams.
I tried that in roxterm but nothing happened, just returned to the terminal prompt.


towhomitmayconcern,

just bought a 2hand eeepc900 to eventually replace my 701.
running Quirky Tahr 602,
Tookalook at the Bios and you should too again.

To enter the Bios re-boot the eeePc, when the led's light up
you have a few seconds to tap the [F2] function key to get in;
my BIOS version = v02.58 ameria megatrends

select 2nd item ... [ADVANCED]

select 2nd line ... Onboard Devices Configuration
where it lists

-onboard lan ...............[enabled]
-onboard C A M E R A..[ enabled] ? ?
-onboard wlan.............[enabled]
-onboard blewtooth.....[enabled]

i'll give more hardware-info if needed, success
