You'll have to make sure ATTRS{idVendor}=="5986", ATTRS{idProduct}=="0268", actually specify the appropriate information for your device. The wiki is not a place to ask for this kind of troubleshooting help. Please try IRC, forums, or the mailing list. Thank you! --Maffblaster (talk) 00:13, 10 December 2021 (UTC)

Possible duplicate wiki page

Talk status

There is Wiki page duplicate to this page, it should probably be merged. As I have found both pages by troubleshooting my webcam, I don't feel confident enough to actually decide what information from there is merge-worthy. But it definitely can confuse people searching for answers (since the other page with less information was first one I found). --Hemmond (talk) 11:08, 16 December 2021 (UTC)

Made the other page redirect to this article as this is more fleshed out and included the other page's content. --Grknight (talk) 14:01, 16 December 2021 (UTC)

Description not working for kernel version 6.1.12

Talk status
This discussion is done as of 2023-03-10.

I recently configured a new kernel version 6.1.12 from scratch. I wondered that the kernel parameter CONFIG_VIDEO_V4L2_SUBDEV_API was not in gentoo-sources. A 2nd point was that the microphone on the webcam did not work. The USB Audio/MIDI driver (CONFIG_SND_USB_AUDIO) was needed. Perhaps this hint could be included in the page. --Spitzmaus (talk) 21:45, 28 February 2023 (UTC)

I'm seeing CONFIG_VIDEO_V4L2_SUBDEV_API available in gentoo-sources-6.2.1... Perhaps you just need to enable the dependencies of it?
Symbol: VIDEO_V4L2_SUBDEV_API [=y]

Hope this helps! --Maffblaster (talk) 23:46, 10 March 2023 (UTC)
