I'm trying to get a Logitech, Inc. QuickCam Web (lego webcam based on logitec)
working on my box running kernel 2.6.28 amd64 kernel. I managed to fix
compilation errors using a patch I found on the bug tracking system plus some
extra modifications. The resulting driver loads and recognizes the camera but
xawtv doesn't give any output (black screen), the test program that comes with
driver gives zeros for mem_map mode, it does seem to give and image for read
mode. I also tried a sample program with opencv which complains
HIGHGUI ERROR: V4L: device /dev/video0 is unable to capture video memory.
I can't downgrade the kernel since I need the newest e1000e for my network card
(anything older and the network card isn't supported).


A couple of quick pointers to help you get more help:

1) post the output of lsusb for the device, and google for it

2) if you don't mind looking at a high volume message area, subscribe to gmane.comp.video.video4linux at gmane.org (mailing-list to newsgroup gateway) and post a query there.

3) There are also the sites http://moinejf.free.fr/ and http://hansdegoede.livejournal.com/
