#36 Only a simply segment fault ?!



The final problem is that since /dev/video0 is there, I
can't access to my webcam with gnomemeeting nor xawtv.

Let's explain:

I'm trying to use the latests sources, qce-ga-0.40d. My
system is a Gentoo 1.4, and the kernel version is
2.4.20. My camera is a Logitech Quickcam Express, and I
remember that with other older kernel (and wish that
with an older version of the driver) the camera worked.

I compiled and installed (make && make install) the
sources without problems.
Then I runned modprobe mod_quickcam and it functioned
so weell that it didn't give me any output =). Finally
I run sh quiccam.sh:

(shell - root)# sh quiccam.sh

(The modules not found are compiled into the kernel)

With my usual user, I try to run gnome meeting, but
since /dev/video0 exist, it says "error al abrir el
dispositivo /dev/video0, canal 0..". I notice that the
camera icon and the camera's options in the control
panel are activated. If I run gnomemeeting as root, the
error isn't given and the camera icon, and the camera
options from the control panel aren't activated.

With xawtv, if I run xawtv -hwscan to scan devices:

xawtv -hwscan
This is xawtv-3.88, running on Linux/i686
looking for available devices
port 77-77
type : Xvideo, image scaler
name : NV17 Video Overlay

port 78-109
type : Xvideo, image scaler
name : NV05 Video Blitter

Violación de segmento // (Segment fault).

Then if I run it one more time, it doesn't show the
last line, and the program wouldn't finish even if I
press control+Z.

What could I do ? Please, help needed, if you know
something I should need, post it.

    You might want to try qc-usb. Also kernel 2.4.20 is buggy
    (will hang program if you unplug camera while using it,
    but it shouldn't cause segmentation fault).
    Sorry, no better ideas this time.
