We have been trying to get USB Webcams to work on the 410C – so far without much success. Out of the box, we found that the shipping Linux kernel does not have enabled support for USB cameras, so we enabled USB drivers and recompiled the kernel.
We then tried two different webcams, and the result is the same: Although the USB Webcam is identified in syslog/dmesg, any retrieved images are corrupted and non-usable. We usually see just a few scan lines of noise, and the rest of the image is black.
The fact that we tried two different webcams suggests that the problem is not (merely) a problem with the drivers, but perhaps something deeper in the kernel…
Does anyone have any insights? Could this be an issue with 64-bit linux and/or memory or serial access?
