Logitech QuickCam Pro 4000 Webcam -Video I problem

Hi everybody,

That's the exact name of the model that I own -not an advertisement...

The gadget does work, proofs:
	-SuSE(9) KDE default webcam application (don't remember its 	  name)
	 (Suse's my second home system, what Windows is/means for 	  others,
Suse is for me...That is, although almost not used,
	  things -hardware- work there.)
	-SuSE(9) Gnomemeeting --> Yes, indeed. 
	-Windows (when I bought it, already some time ago)
	-Camorama, in Fedora (my favourite main home system, still    	 	 Core
1).
	-Even more: I'd bet it worked OK some months ago (but not sure)
	 with Gnomemeeting and xawtv in FC1 (then I didn't have
	 nearly any time to glance at this kind of things and I didn't
	 care so much pass through it).   

My doubts are (in FC1) about the system configuration (maybe
/etc/modules.conf) or might be about some apps' config.

Has it anything to do with the last new kernels for FC1 ? I've always
had precompiled kernels coming from them. At the moment:

AFAIRead, gadget's video chip is Philips, isn't it??

Up2date

Hi all,

  I hav a few questions concerning up2date.

1) What is RedHat's GPG key? Up2date said it was going to "install the
key" but didn't say what the key was.

2) How can I ensure that the packages I download are from
RedHat/Fedora and not spoofed/trojaned? (By the man in middle attack)

Thanks,

The pwcx author recently closed his site because the kernel guys decided
to kick out the pwc module because they don't want to support non open
source software directly with the Linux kernel. Details on the pwc /
pwcx author's position: http://www.smcc.demon.nl/webcam/

No, it is not and never was.

You need to get the last pwcx tarball and compile the module into your
kernel. The pwc.ko module comes with the latest FC2 kernel. The steps
are described in the README coming with the pwcx tarball.

The option is "port=", not "mountport=".  The normal port to use is
2049.

See "man nfs" for details.

The key to the details is that access to the special hardware commands
that are needed to burn CDROMs also gives access to special commands
that permit trashing other disks.

The result is that any user that had permission to burn the cdrom also
had access to the low level commands that can trash the entire system.

To eliminate ANY POSSIBILITY of a trashed system the low level
stuff was blocked as soon as the risk was understood.

The "SCSI filtering" is a reference to code that validates
specific commands as being safe or appropriate for the device.
Eventually the filter will validate and pass the correct
stuff in the correct limited context.

I must admit that I have modified my X-roast icon to use 'sudo' tricks
to make it appear simple.  I did not like the idea of making is SUID.

Dual Head and maximum resolution.

I am trying to setup dual head and it seems that the max resolution for 
each of the different cards is maxed at 800x600. Is this a normal limit 
for dual-head setups. The resolution happens whether I setup the 
secondary card for dual head or have it active as a virtual desktop.

Hardware is below for video.

Internal:
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corp. 82815 CGC [Chipset 
Graphics Controller] (rev 02)

PCI card:
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Radeon R100 QD 
[Radeon 7200]

FWIW, usermode/consolehelper would be another approach to this same
workaround.
