If you are below kernel version 3. But well that way I don’t see any chance in officially supporting and telling people to use video on linux unless they want to depend on the video4linux Maintainer. It needs a firmware for operation. Here we have again one guy against a supposed “clique” of kernel developers. Until now I have seen no attempts to make these changes, alas. However, the camera is working as I’ve plugged it into an analog display and the image is there.

First of all some clarification: The project is moreover looking for lower skilled people who can be taught what to do do it as A or B says otherwise they’ll run against C. Here the problem looks really similar, and it says that linnux uses the same chip. Liunx same as with Reiser4 Posted Nov 14, So binary drivers here or there is basically the same. First you will need to patch your kernel tree with the smiv3.

The website doesn’t list Linux compatibility. Mine is a genuine article and the drivers are apparently already included in the debian distro. It’s all about emipa there, A likes B instead of C even if C has better stuff and supporters, so A will wait till B completes his stuff, and C ilnux be pushed away as long as possible without clean reviews or something else, this is just the way how it works out.


At that time there was no single binary driver available from my side anyway, everything has always been opensource this also has to be considered. Looks like they’ve had various degrees of success: I bought it so I can salvage some family videos from various tape formats we have laying around for cameras and players which won’t work much longer Just one, I have to write that Michael Krufky was also involved into why it turned bad.

Hans promised to work with em2806 community on Reiserfs and so after long deliberation it was included in kernel. This will only work if the kernel source-tree is the same version as the kernel you are currently running. At that time nothing was a problem because there were only analog devices available. The userspace drivers used a couple of self written drivers.

Also quite a few bugs have been fixed in the kernelframework eg tuner-core it cost alot time all together and the work didn’t get valued at all.

I have EzCap working on Ubuntu Cliques are a hard problem to beat and generally impossiblewe can see so many examples of this screwing projects over.

Welcome to the forums.

Here’s the correct one: This will count the patch files in the saa patch files and apply them all. Then you will have to build both the saa module and the smi module.

I’m going to cross check my facts before my next posting about this, and I have found a linux user who has posted details in the ezcap forum about getting it to work and what he did – I didnt understand it. This is, also, the way that kernel developers are normally expected to do their work. You are not logged in. I’m not particularly familiar with this type of hardware, but there seem to be quite a few people trying to get it and similar devices to work, especially on Ubuntu.

The sad truth would seem to be that, while working with the community is something that a couple thousand developers do with little trouble every year, there will always be a few who have difficulties. I use an Asus N56J with Ubuntu Ask Ubuntu works best with JavaScript enabled.
