  1. Tried putting an install in modprobe.conf but it made no difference, except I was back where I started. I didn't get the afore mentioned errors as the driver would not install into the kernel. Guess I will have to put up with the errors in the logs. It does not prevent me from using the camera or anything, it just fills the log some more. At least it is working now. Maybe some day a fix will be found. Many thanks for the input, really appreciated.
  2. Many thanks for that tip, it works. However now in syslog I get :- usb_unlink_urb() is deprecated for synchronous unlinks. Use usb_kill_urb() instead. Badness in usb_unlink_urb at drivers/usb/core/urb.c:457 [<c0103c8e>] dump_stack+0x1e/0x20 [<d0d40a91>] usb_unlink_urb+0xa1/0xb0 [usbcore] [<d0d5b0b9>] ov51x_unlink_isoc+0x39/0x60 [ov511-alt] [<d0d5ba41>] ov51x_release+0x31/0xd0 [ov511-alt] [<c01b36fd>] __fput+0x13d/0x170 [<c01b1997>] filp_close+0xf7/0x4e0 [<c01b1dcc>] sys_close+0x4c/0x70 [<c0102e5d>] sysenter_past_esp+0x52/0x75 whenever I use gnomemeeting. I don't have any other webcam app installed so I cannot test with anything else. I am not sure wether I should be looking at the ov511 driver or not. This really is something else. No-one seems to know anything about the problem. Ah well I'll keep digging and stuff. Thank you for your assistance.
  3. After tracing and probing I found by pure chance that if I did a modprobe for 'ovcamchip' my creative webcam worked. Detected, installed and working. The only problem now is if I reboot I have to modprobe again for the camera to work. How can I do this automatically? I tried 'insmod' but it comes back as incorrect format or something like that. Help would be appreciated please.
  4. Hello to one and all. Although this is my first post on this BB I don't consider myself as a newbie to computers as I have been using and abusing them for some 25+ years. I am a newbie to Linux as I have only had the system for about 8months or so. Now the problem: I am unable to get my creative webcam to operate in LE2005. It worked fine with mdk10.0 and mdk 10.1 but not LE2005. I have gone through syslog, dmesg and system message files. Everything checks out until the following lines i.e. kernel: kobject_register failed for ov511 (-17) kernel: [dump_stack+30/32] dump_stack+0x1e/0x20 kernel: [<c0103c8e>] dump_stack+0x1e/0x20 kernel: [kobject_register+91/112] kobject_register+0x5b/0x70 kernel: [<c02143fb>] kobject_register+0x5b/0x70 kernel: [bus_add_driver+113/208] bus_add_driver+0x71/0xd0 kernel: [<c0281e51>] bus_add_driver+0x71/0xd0 kernel: [driver_register+49/64] driver_register+0x31/0x40 kernel: [<c02824c1>] driver_register+0x31/0x40 kernel: [pg0+277541226/1068971008] usb_register+0x4a/0xb0 [usbcore] kernel: [<d0d3a16a>] usb_register+0x4a/0xb0 [usbcore] kernel: [pg0+276492307/1068971008] usb_ov511_init+0x13/0x36 [ov511] kernel: [<d0c3a013>] usb_ov511_init+0x13/0x36 [ov511] kernel: [sys_init_module+482/624] sys_init_module+0x1e2/0x270 kernel: [<c018a952>] sys_init_module+0x1e2/0x270 kernel: [sysenter_past_esp+82/117] sysenter_past_esp+0x52/0x75 kernel: [<c0102e5d>] sysenter_past_esp+0x52/0x75 kernel: usbcore: error -17 registering driver ov511 I have googled and posted in newsgroups without success. I had only one reply which suggests to me it is my setup is at fault. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you. Since posting the above I have found someone else having the same problem, and with no replies to boot. So it is not just my setup. !@*? Colin...
