    Default webcam configuration conflicts with TV tuner

    Hi there
    I'm trying to configure my webcam (logitech clicksmart 310) on my Fedora core 6. I also have an ASUS PCI Tv tuner.

    There's no /dev/video[X] for this cam. The existing /dev/video0 is for TV Tuner (it works).

    The webcam is nonetheless well recognized as it appears is my hardware list.

    lsusb gives this :
    Bus 001 Device 004: ID 046d:0900 Logitech, Inc. ClickSmart 310

    What can I do to get a proper /dev/video1 ? None of my webcam apps work (spcagui, amsn...) because they always mistake my TV Tuner for my webcam.

    I tryied to mknod some entry point for it like that :
    mknod /dev/video1 c 81 0

    But it didn't work either.

    Thank you for your help.

    You need to load the webcam driver for your ClickSmart 310. I haven't used that camera or chip, but check out http://spca50x.sourceforge.net/spca50x.php?page=cams

    Ok. I've just installed it. It changed nothing. Seems like it was already installed in this regard.
    When I plug in the cam, a message pops up asking me if I want to download images from the cam. So I guess That the drivers for it are installed.

    Anyway when I ask for spcagui (a webcam test utility), here's the output :

    SpcaGui version: 0.3.5 date: 18 September 2005
    video device /dev/video0
    Camera found: ASUS TV-FM 7134
    blah blah blah...

    I still don't have any /dev/video1, only /dev/video0, in this case my TV tuner as you can see.
