Re: Philips PCVC675K doesn't work

The output of dmesg appears to indicate that you now have the device /dev/video0. Have you checked that?

Code: Select all
ls /dev

If it does exist, try using an application such as Cheese or Camorama:

Code: Select all
equo install cheese camorama

I have no idea what the error message in your dmesg output means:

Code: Select all
pwc: recv_control_msg error -32 req 04 val 1700

but I will google it. You could try doing the same in case you come up with some pointers too.

Re: Philips PCVC675K doesn't work

The following Fedora bug report looks exactly like your problem, but is inconclusive: Bug 890028 - Philips PCVC675K webcam broken. As your model of Webcam is old, and as the pwc driver is old, I'm beginning to think that the driver (module) is incompatible with newer kernels. The error message you're seeing comes from the kernel source code file /usr/src/linux-3.*.*-gentoo/drivers/media/usb/pwc/pwc-ctrl.c, and the last time that file was updated was in 2011 according to a comment in its header. I'll do a bit more googling, but I think you will probably not be able to get it to work.

It was as you say...Webcam was not compatible with new kernel. I buyed a Logitech C210 and it works plug and play.

Thanks for help
