External iSight with PowerBook G4
I searched the mailing list archives for reports on how to get iSight
working on Linux. Most of the solutions start out by using the
application 'Coriander' to test if it can display video from the
camera. And then the next step is to get it to work with Ekiga.
However, I am still stuck with 'Coriander'.
I get the following error when trying to start from ISO control:
"ISO transmission refuses to start"
After trying it several times I get a segfault with the following error
libdc1394 error: RAW1394 failure: in
dc1394_video_get_supported_framerates (control.c, line 594): Could not
get supported framerates
The dmesg output when I plug in the iSight is:
