Found a parallel port connectix web cam here in the office "stuff" box.
I believe it to be a colour device. I've managed to figure out the
modules I need loaded but have this far been unable toget a picture. I
was hoping that perhaps there was some previous experience with these
devices on the list.
Here is the output when I run xawtv. Not the v4l-conf error. v4l-conf
runs fine from the commandline. It finishes with the no overlay message.
I'm running a vanilla RedHat 7.1 with Ximian Gnome 1.4. The gfx card is
a GeForce2MX with Nvidia's latest drivers.
