I'm quite sure you are not interested in my comment on your drivers, but since you explicitly expect beta-testers to comment...
I recently bought some webcam. I told the sales person "A Logitech webcam. That's important for me!", since I knew you people have hacked an excellent driver for Logitech.
Ok. When I got my cam, it was a Dexxa.
Linux (kernel 2.4.10-ac11 with ext3 patched in) identifies it as:
0x46d / 0x870
and I tried several drivers:
- Jonas dexxa-hack was working... until I plugged the cam in: page fault
- the basic quickcam driver was working and not accepting the cam; syslog says:
quickcam: HDCS1000-sensor ident:00
quickcam: Photobit-sensor ident:00 00
- the "patch" as offered on your site didn't change that
- when I "patched" the code to accept every sensor (I tried both HDCS and PB) I got a page fault
By the way: I am also a proud owner of some kind of webcam manufactured by Digitaldream (called L'Esprit) with a STV680 sensor. Needless to say, that none of the above drivers accepts the cam (after I "patched" them to give it a try).
Okay, if somebody has some suggestions what I should try or wants some special details about the errors or would like to buy my Dexxa webcam, mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I hope some new drivers turns up in the next weeks before I spent all my money on new cheap, non-linux-compatible webcams... 8-)
check website this weekend for updated installation instructions
and supply part number
Peter sent me a message that 2.4.10 is broken which I can only confirm.
After upgrading to 2.4.12 it's working fine!
Keep up the good work!
