Is this 64bit Peppermint ?


It's 32 bit the strange thing is I'm sure it worked before because if you remeber right I had a problem with my Grand-Daughters pc loading a webcam and i tried it in this machine and it worked in cheese

I posted the problem in the peppermint forums   http://peppermintos.net/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=5186

entry 6 suggests cheese worked at that time because i would have used cheese to test the webcam

Have you tried booting without the webcam plugged in and seeing if cheese works ?

did this start when you fitted the capture card ?

I don't have the webcam connected to this PC it's connected to Chloes PC

I can't be sure but I'm only aware of it since installing the TV card, I don't use Cheese on this PC for anything else

Out of curiosity I just tested cheese on Chloes PC which runs peppermint 3 and it loads fine and opens the webcam

Also just out of curiosiry I've just noticed my status is "Full Member" does that mean I can say swear words ? :)

I'll see if I can dig anything up .. but don't hold your breath for something tonight .. maybe I'll find sommat quickly, maybe I won't find anything at all

Maybe attaching the dmesg and syslog contents from Peppermint might help:
Code: [Select]
dmesg > ~/dmesg.txt
and
Code: [Select]
cat /var/log/syslog > ~/syslog.txt

then attach the dmesg.txt and syslog.txt files from you home directory to your next posting

OK, run:
Code: [Select]
strace -o ~/cheese-strace.txt cheese
then attach the cheese-strace.txt file from your home folder.

Code: [Select]
sudo modprobe -r bttv
then
Code: [Select]
sudo modprobe bttv card=2

@ SeZo

we were just massing wit cheese in Peppermint to see if we could get that running .. He can go back to Mint if you like

Thinking about it, it may be a good idea to start a seperate topic for Cheese and capture in Peppermint, so it doesn't become too confusing.

Waddaya reckon ?

The first time I tried your instructions I forgot to run the second command before loading cheese and cheese opened up with the message "no devices loaded"  then I realised i didn't type your second command so I closed cheese  and tried again this time with both commands and got the above output, so I rebooted and typed in both commands and got the above output,

Do you want me to reboot and try then first command only to see if cheese at least opens ?

Further to the last post Cheese is now opening up but if I use the 3 commands you gave me I get the error output I posted in my previous post

not at present .. if cheese opened when you removed the bttv driver it's obvioulsy something to do with the card/drivers

there are a load of ioctl errors in the strace that I neeed to research a bit

so for now Ill hand you back to SeZo and Mint.

With a suggestion that you try running strace on cheese and vlc in Mint
