Re: [Ekiga-list] a few problems with 3.0.1

Hmm .. I'm getting that with 3.0.0

On powering up can I open xawtv successfully as root

although the image is black and an orange-hued white it is a real-time
video image.

Following Eugen Dedu ..

I enabled v4l in ptlib, recompiled Ekiga 3.0.0, and
set up executable permissions on /dev/video0

However when starting Ekiga 3.0.0 and trying to
"display images from the camera device" I get a pop-up
message saying

'ekiga -d 4' gives me

I seem to remember that there was a symlink from /dev/video0 to
/dev/video .. why did it disappear ?

> Tohunga:/dev# ln -s /dev/video0 /dev/video
"ekiga -d 4" .. gives me the same error message as above when I try to
"display images from your camera device".

What seems to be happening here ? I'd be grateful for any ideas.
