Summary: xawtv - Patches for libv4l-support (gspca-devices)
Product: openSUSE 11.1
Version: Final
Platform: Other
OS/Version: openSUSE 11.1
Status: NEW
Severity: Enhancement
Priority: P5 - None
Component: Other
AssignedTo: bnc-team-screening@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Since kernel 2.6.27 some applications will not work properly with certain
webcams (using i.e the new gspca-drivers) due to missing support for lib4vl
userspace library.

Below is a set of patches for xawtv-3.9.5 obtained from fedora10 package, see


for more information.

These patches have also been merged to Ubuntu 8.10

xawtv (3.95.dfsg.1-8ubuntu2) intrepid; urgency=low

* Add 100_fedora-v4l2-fixes.dpatch: fixes for v4l2 use (from Fedora).
* Add 101_fedora-nodga.dpatch: fixes for lack of DGA (from Fedora).
* Add 102_fedora-use_libv4l.dpatch: use libv4l to open v4l devices (from
Fedora) and added libv4l-dev Build-Dep (LP: #260918).

One of the patches (xawtv-3.95-fixes.patch) was slightly modified as one of the
hunks is already inside one of the patches in the original package for openSUSE

The spec-file was also slightly modified to include libv4l-devel as
"BuildRequire" (and of course including the new patches).

Unfortunately, I have no appropriate hardware to test but the package builds
fine on openSUSE 11.1 (i586).
