Important Always proceed cautiously, when removing firmware — or disabling kernel configuration items — that do not appear to be relevant to you, and ensure as detailed below that you have a ‘known good’ backup kernel to fall back to in case of problems. In the stream settings, enable http and select at least a video codec. Select the proper option in the kernel. Note When you later restart under your new kernel and log in again to GNOME see “Finishing Up”, below , audio should still be operational; you probably won’t notice any difference after making these changes, other than the fewer warnings when emerging sound-related packages. You will not need to download the driver sources manually unless you want to test a newer version or help with development. The “open capture dialog” and “stream settings” will also show you the options you need to perform all this from the command line. You should now have your camera’s module installed unless compiled into the kernel.

Bug # Support UVC(Webcam framework) in kernel.

Unless you have good reason to keep it, stop sshd now gemtoo ensure it does not restart again on boot. This is a regression; if it affects you, first use the process described in “Preliminaries”, above to get a root terminal, then issue:.

Find this by pressing Windows Key and then typing ‘Bluetooth’ or, by clicking on the ‘spanner and screwdriver’ icon from the drop-down menu under the rightmost ‘power’ icon on the top bar.

Where necessary, follow the steps above to set the necessary options for your particular choice of target machine. Extension units can be accessed directly or mapped to V4L2 controls.


For the CF-AX3, the ‘stock’ configuration works perfectly for suspend simply press Fn F7 and the machine will enter sleep state, with its power button light gentko slowly; slide the power button, and it will resume.


Proprietary viewer that uses the UVC video module to capture video and images.

If it is currently commented out the line starts with a characterthen uncomment and edit that line so it reads:. Save and exit the nano editor you can also close out the terminal if you have no further use for it.

Obviously, your output will differ, depending upon your kernel version, the number of modules removed etc. You can find out more information about your machine’s webcam by issuing in the second terminal the one not displaying the menuconfig interface:.

It’s a useful idiom to be aware of. Keeping a timestamped backup via –snapshot-backup ensures that there’s no risk we run buildkernel twice between reboots, thereby losing our reference point. Nevertheless, it is convenient and ‘one-shot’ in nature, so, if you do wish to try out localmodconfig for yourself, proceed as follows.

Make sure you have USB support in your kernel. Issue again, remember we are just working through the output on a CF-AX3 for concreteness here; adapt for your own system dmesg results:.

Latest version is available from SVN:. In this penultimate chapter, we’ll address that, by enabling the relevant configuration options and recompiling the kernel using the buildkernel tool’s –menuconfig option.

In what follows, we will cover the following common features, using the Panasonic CF-AX3 as a fairly typical example it is a reasonably feature-rich Ultrabookso some of these may apply directly to your system too:.

Now, because it will be useful to have a second terminal available for emerge work etc. Obviously, your output will differ, depending upon your kernel version, the amount of pruning you have done etc.


As a result, at this point in the installation a number of features that may be present on your machine such as Bluetooth, WiFi, touchscreen etc. The code includes support for older kernel versions, but might lag behind the uvcvideo git repository by a few days.

The “open capture dialog” and “stream settings” will ucv show you the options you need to perform all this from the command line.

Directly at the target machine, click on your regular user name then, when prompted, type in the regular user password you set up earlier ensure you have the correct keyboard settings, if relevant, as discussed above. They require a user-space management tool. Tip Depending on the popularity of your target machine with other Linux users, you may be also able to find useful kernel — and other — configuration information by searching online.

To resume, ensure that the boot USB key is inserted, and slide the power key.

Assuming this completed successfully you get the output All done! Note The following option 2 approach should only be attempted if option 1, above, didn’t work for your target PC. If you can’t find your model in the list, try the drivers one after the other. You need to subscribe to the list before posting.

Have a gentop through the output list, and make a note of any that are irrelevant to your system. In this fresh window, log in as root:. I played with camera settings in ekiga but no luck; also tried ekiga’s debug option, yet nothing related showed up. Post as a guest Name.
