Has anybody on the list got this camera working with opensuse 11.1 &

I have a Quickcam Pro 9000, kernel and
It works. I try with skype and luvcview no problem.

Don't have S5500 around, sorry cannot help with that one.

If it recognized as UVC camera, try check with luvcview first.


Thanks, that's reassuring, but there's something not right in this

~> luvcview
luvcview 0.2.4

SDL information:
Video driver: x11
A window manager is available
Device information:
Device path: /dev/video0
Stream settings:
Frame format: MJPG
Unable to set format: Device or resource busy
Init v4L2 failed !! exit fatal

I don't think I've got anything else running which would be using v4l2
:( or is the problem with the frame format?

Strangely, luvcview works when I log into KDE3 on the same machine. Ekiga
and GQCam don't.

I have a Logitech Quick Chat cam which is working with kopete and
motion, but is it not working with luvcview, gqcam, skype. Strange, I
know :)

for luvcview I have the same error.

Odd, isn't it? Which operating system/desktop are you using?
