    it's not listed under list-cameras, and the versions from
    `gphoto2 --version` reads

    gphoto2 2.1.6

    *sorry for the back to back, but...*

    i did an rpm -ev gphoto2.... --nodeps
    and then rpm -ivh gphoto2*.rpm with the rpm i got from the
    site last night just before posting.

    ithe cam was also not in the listing before i did this.

    just to clarify that nobody's time is being wasted....
    the "Philips P44417B keychain camera" is the same as the
    FunCam that Comcast has been giving out, correct?

    is it shown in "gphoto2 --list-cameras |grep Philips" ?

    If not, your libgphoto2 is likely incorrect installed and
    your previous libgphoto2 version picked up.

    how do i go about reinstalling libgphoto2? i tried to get
    the sources from the gphoto site, but it said there was an
    issue with usbutils (i think that was it) and i did it with
    ./configure --nousb and it still has this issue. i also was
    unable to uninstall it as i don't have it installed as an
    rpm, and i can't find an rpm that'll reinstall it.

    the gphoto2 rpm i got said it had it inculded, but aparantly
    not.

    actually i just did `rpm -ev gphoto2-2.1.6-1.1 --nodeps` and
    `rpm -ev libgphoto2-2.1.1-1 --nodeps` and then installed
    those rpms...

    i had to install libgphoto2 with --nodeps because there was
    a problem with a dependency on libexif.so.8, which i do
    actually have installed...

    still no keychain cam in the list though

    Its only there for libgphoto2 version 2.1.99 (its pretty
    new).

    right...

    i got the 2.1.99 tarball from the gphoto2 site, but had
    problems configuring it due to an issue with libusb.
    i updated to libusb-0.1.11, and the configure went
    smoothly (i had already done `rpm -ev libgphoto2-2.1.1-1 --
    nodeps` beforehand)
    i did make and make install, but my output for `gphoto2 --
    list-cameras | grep "hilips"` is
    "Philips ESP2" (EXPERIMENTAL)
    "Philips ESP50" (EXPERIMENTAL)
    "Philips ESP60" (EXPERIMENTAL)
    "Philips ESP70" (EXPERIMENTAL)
    "Philips ESP80" (EXPERIMENTAL)
    "Philips ESP80SXG" (EXPERIMENTAL)

    i just don't get it.

    i think i'm going to try to uninstall gphoto2 also and use
    the tarball from their site to see how that goes.

    i'll post results shortly

    looks like i've already done that, and no help...

    any suggestions as to why i would have the latest
    libgphoto2 and still not have the newest camera listings?

    maybe something is still remaining from my old version?

    hm... i just tried to install gphoto2-2.1.99, but furing
    configure i got
    * Fatal: gphoto2 requires libgphoto2 >= 2.1.99 to build.
    *
    * Possible solutions:
    * - set PKG_CONFIG_PATH to adequate value
    * - call configure with LIBGPHOTO2_LIBS=.. and
    LIBGPHOTO2_CFLAGS=..
    * - call configure with one of the --with-libgphoto2
    parameters
    * - get libgphoto2 and install it:

    even though i just installed libgphoto2-2.1.99 about two
    minutes ago...

    you need to upgrade "libgphoto2" to get newer camera
    support.

    To check whether you have it, use:
    gphoto2 --version

    my output is
    This version of gphoto2 is using the following software
    versions and options:
    gphoto2 2.1.6 i386-redhat-linux-gcc,
    popt, exif, no cdk, no aa, jpeg, readline
    libgphoto2 2.1.6 i386-redhat-linux-gcc,
    EXIF, no ltdl, /proc/meminfo
    libgphoto2_port 0.5.1 i386-redhat-linux-gcc, USB,
    serial baudboy locking, no ltdl

    but i just removed libgphoto2-2.1.1-1 and installed
    libgphoto2-2.1.99. how do i get rid of 2.1.6? and why
    didn't 2.1.99 overwrite it? also, i don't think i ever
    installed 2.1.6

    well, it seems to be working now that i have copied some
    files from /usr/lib/pkgconfig
    to /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig...

    but... it turns out the P44417B isn't even the right model
    camera that i have.

    i feel like an idiot. thankyou so much for your help
    though, i definitely feel more confident in using gphoto2
    after all this trial and error
