Bucko, did you have to put pwc into the autoload file before you could get it to work? What webcam do you have? To make the picture bigger you will need to emerge pwcx. Go to this webpage: http://www.smcc.demon.nl/webcam/release.html download the pwcx v8.2.2 super value pack. Out of that you need th...

JustKickNits,

Thanks for the suggestions. I have to leave home right now. I'll give it a try and post my results here when I get back in about 5-6 hours.

JustKickNits,

Sorry, I met that I tried your modprobe command and got no information or error reports back.

JustKickNits:

You may be right about the Logitech Quickcam Pro 4000 not being supported until 2.4.21 or later. I tried your probmod pwc command as root and it just returned to the next cursor line. No error message or any device information was given. Yes, I had my cam plugged in when I did that.

Thanks for your suggestions JustKickNit. I worked with a knowledgeable guy on #gentoox IRC for 2 hours last night trying to get my Logitech Quickcam Pro 4000 running on the xbox, but it never worked. Audio seems to be recognized, but no video. When I start camsource it all goes OK and then I get err...

I believe that pwc is already there, but I don't think pwcx is. However, why is the emerge command in the form: emerge media-video/usb-pwcx instead of the normal: emerge pwcx? If I emerge pwcx and then plugin the camera and reboot, with this automatically make the video0 that is required? Thanks for...

How about it ShAALaX. Will you take up the challenge if we buy you the webcam? I am certainly happy to do so if it means I can get this thing working on the xbox.

Webcam support request

Gentoox is wonderful!! Great work.

ShALLaX, could you add support for a webcam in gentoox? The tutorial posted on this site by another just doesn't seem to work. Does gentoox home edition v2.1 include video4linx support?

If I donated a webcam would you dig into the problem? Thanks.

How do you "configure the driver"? I downloaded the qce driver for my Quickcam Pro 4000 as suggested in the above referenced tutorial. I emerged it and that went OK. Do I have to do something else to "configure" it as you suggested?

Can apache be installed on Gentoox Home Edition?

Can the apache server be installed under the latest home edition of Gentoox? I searched and found a post where ShALLaX said that it should be installed under the pro edition. Is that a limitaion?

Simple server and java

I have been experimenting with a java script embeded in an html page to update a webcam image. When I load it onto the xbox and watch it using samba in Internet Explorer on my Windows PC it works just fine, the image refreshes every few seconds as it should. When I use the simple server that comes i...
