Webcam / DVB-T USB stick not usable
|Reported by:||lme||Owned by:|
8.1-RC1 ships with webcamd and cuse4bsd installed and loaded by default, which is very good. :)
But webcams / dvb devices don't work with the shipped configuration.
A normal user needs access rights to the appropriate devices.
Attached is a patch for devfs.rules and devfs.conf which sets the permissions.
BTW: There's no need to change the group ownership of the devices to "operator" when mode 666 is set -- anyone already has full access to the devices.
Most DVB devices also need their firmware loaded. Please take a look at http://www.linuxtv.org/downloads/firmware/.
It would be good to place all those firmware files in /boot/modules where webcamd expects them (and knows by itself which firmware to load).
