USB webcam

Postby mthielemann on Wed Feb 11, 2009 10:06 am


I use a Logitech Quickcam Pro 9000 an my Qube 3 with SB2. I built the uvcvideo driver from source and use uvc-streamer as streaming server. It works very well but there is still one issue that has to be fixed:

After booting the Qube there is no device /dev/video0. I have to run
Code: Select all
/sbin/modprobe uvcvideo

and then /dev/video0 will be created. How can I make the Qube creating the device at startup? Could I insert the line /sbin/modprobe uvcvideo in /etc/modprobe.conf?

Thanks for your help.
