Hi! I'd like to know if it's possible to use a GSPCA webcam (Genius Eye 312) and what should I do to make this work...


I connected it and it's recognized but I don't have the needed kernel modules

That looks more like a TV card class device, would have to check if gspca_pac7311 is available in the current kernel and what configs to enable if any, or if it needs out of tree firmware and drivers...

Edit: https://cateee.net/lkddb/web-lkddb/USB_G...C7311.html are the config options

Edit2: It seems to be available in the kernel sources we use https://github.com/ayufan-rock64/linux-k.../usb/gspca

So it's maybe only a matter of enabling the configs and building a new kernel/the modules...

I get it it's a low cost camera and might have problems but what I need is to build the module and then deal with those problems

have you checked with the genius eye manufacturer about what is available from them? or maybe find support forums geared toward that hardware. buying a piece of hardware that is very old when you seemingly do not have the skills to do what is necessary was a bad move. i'm guessing you did zero research on what you would need to do to even try to get it working on the rock64, that was another bad move.my suggestion is to spend about 2 or 3 hours a day teaching yourself the skills you need to take on a project like this. members here have their own projects and it seems do not have the time it would take to do what it seems to amount to is doing basically the whole project. so learn how to do it yourself or in the future do not buy hardware you do not have the skills to try these time consuming projects. if you learn how to do things yourself you will be very happy in 2 or 3 years, and if you do not want to teach yourself then do not buy hardware that you know you can not get running. there, i spent about 5 minutes of my time doing my best to help you. it is a very busy time of the year and i have several of my own things to do. so don't try to make me and others feel bad about not being able to help you further. merry Christmas and good luck in the new year in learning a really great set of skills.
