Webcam + dvbt in gutsy (07.08.08 and in hardy)
solved for hardy heron 8.04.1; see the link knuutsen at wordpress.com at the bottom of this page. On my blog there are also other solutions, especially for 64 bit hardy. Enjoy!
Im using gutsy and have a prob to get Webcam and DVBT working at the same time.
dvbt = Hauppauge HVR - 900
Webcam = Creative Live! Cam Notebook Pro
If i make a separate installation all works fine:
HVR - 900 works with v4l-dvb-
Creative Webcam works with gspca "out of the box". So i didnt have installed anything.
But if i try to work both together only dvbt works fine (with kaffeine) and the Webcam isnt found by gspca (lsusb is fine): here the results if i type in the terminal:
" sudo modprobe gspca"
"" FATAL: Error inserting gspca (/lib/modules/
and dmesg tells me:
"" [ 1336.216000] gspca: disagrees about version of symbol video_devdata
[ 1336.216000] gspca: Unknown symbol video_devdata
[ 1336.216000] gspca: disagrees about version of symbol video_unregiste
[ 1336.216000] gspca: Unknown symbol video_unregiste

[ 1336.216000] gspca: Unknown symbol video_register_
[ 1336.220000] gspca: disagrees about version of symbol video_device_
[ 1336.220000] gspca: Unknown symbol video_device_
If i deinstall v4l-dvb- experimental (so i kick my dvbt) than reboot and i have my Webcam back.....
I also found some sites, where the prob is described and where some guys try to fix it but until now unsolved. Here are those sites:
Some more detail infos
HVR - 900 uses /dev/video0
/dev/video1 not existing (but i guess its clear cause gspca isnt present) - here the results of "usbview" in terminal:
"" OHCI Host Controller "" says: ""Unknown device"" if i deinstall v4l-dvb-
if dvbt + Webcam...lsusb says:
Bus 002 Device 003: ID 041e:4051 Creative Technology, Ltd ## thats the webcam
Bus 003 Device 007: ID 2040:6500 Hauppauge
My solution isnt a real solution but it works:
Ive installed two headers the i386 and the generic. on i386 runs the webcam and on generic the dvbt. But i have to restart the system. Thats a really sucking methode.......
Please tell me what i have to do to get both working??????
Thanks for reply......
