Bug Description

Hello folks

Im running the current Jaunty and have bought a C3 TECH webcam with the usb id 093a:2620 cam chip is PAC7311 (GSPCA drivers)

the current stable pac7311.c found on http://linuxtv.org/hg/v4l-dvb
have this id
USB_DEVICE(0x093a, 0x2620), .driver_info = SENSOR_PAC7302

but the pac7311.c on current Jaunty kernel source code does not have it..... the most significant change i could saw in this driver is the add of some new ids (mine is in the new bunch)

Is there a way possible to have the gspca driver updated to the current stable one ? or if not is there a way to override this id 093a:with another one like id 093a:2621 that already exists in the driver?

or even maybe forcing the driver to load with the chips id im choosing?

Thanks a lot

Hi alexhguerra,

Unfortunately the kernel is currently frozen for the upcoming Jaunty release at the end of the week. However, I think this should indeed qualify for a stable release update to Jaunty. I'm pasting the upstream git commit id for the kernel team to reference. In the mean time I'd direct you to the 2.6.29 upstream mainline kernel the Ubuntu kernel team has built - https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KernelMainlineBuilds . It contains the patch referenced below for your device. Thanks.

It Worked !!!! :)

Just a thing that i noted on another wabcam, a "usb not enough bandwidth have been detected error -28" showed up, but with this webcam, it worked at all. Its a little sluggish , but works :) same behavior as Fedora 11 beta

I have just purchased the same webcam - upgraded kernel to 2.6.29 but can't get it to work. Am I missing something?

After further research - the device was recognized, and even worked (somewhat) in cheese. The problem was that the device uses a PJPG palette that is not recognized by most programs. However, that palette recognition issue does not relate to this bug. My apologies.
