    Building support for Logitech Quickcam Pro 9000

    Dear all,

    Have been trying to make Logitech Quickcam Pro 9000 for my Fedora 8 PC.

    To make it work I followed instructions as at:

    http://liquidat.wordpress.com/2007/1...with-fedora-8/

    However I fail in the last part, when I have successfully built/compiled UVC driver.

    I get the following in my dmesg:

    uvcvideo: Unknown symbol v4l_compat_ioctl32
    uvcvideo: Unknown symbol v4l_compat_translate_ioctl
    uvcvideo: Unknown symbol video_devdata
    uvcvideo: Unknown symbol v4l_printk_ioctl
    uvcvideo: Unknown symbol video_unregister_device
    uvcvideo: Unknown symbol video_device_alloc
    uvcvideo: Unknown symbol video_register_device
    uvcvideo: Unknown symbol video_usercopy
    uvcvideo: Unknown symbol video_device_release
    uvcvideo: Unknown symbol v4l_compat_ioctl32
    uvcvideo: Unknown symbol v4l_compat_translate_ioctl
    uvcvideo: Unknown symbol video_devdata
    uvcvideo: Unknown symbol v4l_printk_ioctl
    uvcvideo: Unknown symbol video_unregister_device
    uvcvideo: Unknown symbol video_device_alloc
    uvcvideo: Unknown symbol video_register_device
    uvcvideo: Unknown symbol video_usercopy
    uvcvideo: Unknown symbol video_device_release

    On enquiry from fellow users, I was told to enable uvc option in kernel which requires compiling a custom kernel from source

    For doing this I followed the instructions at http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Docs/CustomKernel

    However I start getting compile errors after I "rpmbuild -bp --target=`uname -m` kernel.spec"

    :

    :
    + make ARCH=i386 nonint_oldconfig

    from scripts/basic/fixdep.c:115:

    scripts/basic/fixdep.c: In function 'usage':
    scripts/basic/fixdep.c:131: warning: implicit declaration of function 'fprintf'
    :
    :
    :

    Essentially, if this was through, I would have been able to do a 'make menuconfig' and it would have been possible to enable uvc option in the kernel.

    Can someone tell me where am I going wrong???

    I also get Error -71 in my dmesg now and the device is no longer getting listed in lsusb output, when at least the device was listed before I started all this.

    You are missing some include files (why ?). Try
    yum -y groupinstall "Development Tools"

    I dont think I am missing on some development tools. Its only prompting me for Fortran, which I believe is not related here:

    ================================================== ===========================
    Package Arch Version Repository Size
    ================================================== ===========================
    Installing:
    gcc-gfortran i386 4.1.2-33 fedora 3.0 M
    Installing for dependencies:
    mpfr i386 2.3.0-1.fc8 fedora 142 k

    Transaction Summary
    ================================================== ===========================
    Install 2 Package(s)
    Update 0 Package(s)
    Remove 0 Package(s)

    Total download size: 3.1 M
    Is this ok [y/N]: N

    Thanks, I was missing glibc-headers. I did a make and make install of uvc driver once again. Now it worked, somewhat!! I get the following in dmesg:

    uvcvideo: Found UVC 1.00 device <unnamed> (046d:0990)
    uvcvideo: Failed to query (1) UVC control 2 (unit 0) : -71 (exp. 26).
    uvcvideo: Failed to initialize the device (-5).

    and the following for lsusb

    Bus 001 Device 008: ID 046d:0990 Logitech, Inc.
    Ekiga and VLC did not find the device.

    What next??
