Re: Logitech HD Webcam C270 - Chipmunk Sound

Nevermind. I just added uvcvideo to my modules in rc.conf and now it works fine

Could someone point me to instructions on how to apply this patch? Something int he wiki maybe? I can't seem to find out how.

The easiest way to do this is through ABS (Arch Build System). First install ABS (pacman -S abs), then run it as root to get the necessary packages in /var/abs. Then, copy the linux source to your directory of choice. Say you have an abs folder in your home folder- you would do

cp -r /var/abs/core/linux /home/user/abs

(The kernel is now called linux instead of kernel26 like it used to be called) Or, just open a file manager and move it that way.

Then, you need to go into the directory you copied over (via file manager). Copy the patch you find in the link above in a file named, for example, mic.patch, and place it in the /home/user/abs/linux directory you copied over. Open a terminal and run

lsusb

and find your webcam. For example, my relevant line is:

Bus 002 Device 002: ID 046d:0809 Logitech, Inc. Webcam Pro 9000

Note the 046d:0809- that is the number you need to change TO in the patch. For example, my patch file has:

+    /* Logitech Webcam Pro 9000 */
+    { USB_DEVICE(0x046d, 0x0809), .driver_info = USB_QUIRK_RESET_RESUME },
+

while yours might be totally different if its a different webcam. This is the most important part really- the patch wont do you any good if its not pointing at the right device.

Now, open the PKGBUILD found in the /home/user/abs/linux directory. Also, open a terminal at the /home/user/abs/linux directory location. Add

'mic.patch'

to the source line (take a look at the fix-i915.patch for an example of how to properly write it down, and to make it easy, place it LAST in the source array). Then, you need to generate an md5sum for the patch file and place it in the RIGHT order in the md5sums portion of the PKGBUILD. Go to your terminal, type

md5sum mic.patch

and record (or copy) the md5sum printed out. Paste that md5sum into the md5sums portion of the PKGBUILD where its in the same order it appears in the source list (again, since you likely did it LAST in the sources array as suggested above, you would do the same in the md5sum array). Now, go down to the build portion of the PKGBUILD and BEFORE the if/else statement, place the following:

patch -p1 -i "$srcdir/mic.patch"

and save the PKGBUILD.
Go back to the terminal and run:

makepkg -s

With any luck, it will build (it will take prolly 20 minutes depending on hardware). Once done, you install the package with

pacman -U kernelname.pkg.tar.xz

If you have any issues, let us know. You might want to check the ABS wiki to get more familiar with the process- ABS is very useful at times.

Re: Logitech HD Webcam C270 - Chipmunk Sound

Dear fellow Chipmunks,

thank you for the patch and GSF1200S, thanks for the instructions.

I waited for the kernel update 3.0.2 with the hope that the fix would be included, but at least for the logitech c250 the problem is still there - the proposed patch here fixes it. Is 3.0.2 working for anyone? How to find out when the patch gets into a kernel-release?

Re: Logitech HD Webcam C270 - Chipmunk Sound

Im glad the above helped some of you, but I wanted to make an addition to the above so none of you guys encounter issues:
1) Make sure you also install the corresponding linux-headers tar.xz that is generated when you compile the latest kernel via ABS- if you dont, you can have issues getting various programs to compile or various drivers to work (e.g. nvidia).
2) You may not want to have to recompile the kernel everytime a new one is replaced since, especially on older hardware, that can take quite some time. Consider only bumping up to a new release every 2 or 3 kernel releases (so you dont get too behind on various other packages requiring the newest kernel as a dependency); open /etc/pacman.conf and add linux and linux-headers to the IgnorePkg line: you can manually (pacman -U) a new built kernel in whenever you want, but -Syu will ignore any newer kernel upgrades (and will warn you that its doing so).
3) I highly suggest if you have a dual core or greater machine to heed the following advice from the kernel building wiki (https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Kernel_Compilation):

Compiling with multiple CPUs

To tell the compiler to use all CPUs during compile use the -j<number> make flag. The number should be n+1 where n is the number of your CPUs.

This example is for a 2 core system (2+1=3):
File: /etc/makepkg.conf

...
#-- Make Flags: change this for DistCC/SMP systems
MAKEFLAGS="-j3"
...

Im on an i7, and my compiling time for the kernel went from 30 minutes to a little over 10 by changing from -j2 to -j5- something to keep in mind smile

Re: Logitech HD Webcam C270 - Chipmunk Sound

btw, you dont have to build whole kernel source, you can just build a single module, i'll post soon how to do it.

Be nice to know how to do that..

Is it possible to build one module and use it with the binary kernel package? Kinda annoying rebuilding everytime a new kernel is released, but I dont want to get into issues with other packages being held back as a result of holding onto an older kernel...

Re: Logitech HD Webcam C270 - Chipmunk Sound

Here's the steps:
1. Download kernel source from kernel.org (e.g linux-3.0.3.tar.bz2) and unpack it.
2. cd linux-3.x.x
3. modify the source (use your patch, or modify code by hand.)
4.

sed -ri 's|^(SUBLEVEL =).*|\1|' Makefile

(see PKGBUILD for linux package for additional info)
5. zcat /proc/config.gz > .config
6. make oldconfig
7. make prepare
8. make modules_prepare
9. make SUBDIRS=scripts/mod
10. make SUBDIRS=drivers/usb/core modules

At this time your module should be ready. Check it:

11. change directory  to  drivers/usb/core and check if usbcore.ko is there. (modinfo usbcore.ko) and gzip it
if you see  "vermagic:       3.0-ARCH SMP preempt mod_unload" in modinfo's output, your module is ready to use. You can copy it to /lib/modules/3.0-ARCH/kernel/drivers/usb/core/
12. rebuild initrd (as you may need usbcore on boot)
13. reboot and PRAY tongue

Re: Logitech HD Webcam C270 - Chipmunk Sound

Can this patch be incorporated into the main kernel?


@ras0ir thanks - that looks very useful. Just one note: your #3 isn't a command like most of the others. Some people might not be sure how to do that. Usually it's better to list the command. Just a nitpick i have about linux doc - don't just tell, tell how. ;-)

Re: Logitech HD Webcam C270 - Chipmunk Sound

I tried like yall said to patch the kernel and everything went fine till i did the makepkg -s
it got to the part where it was patching the i915 and crashes and says soemthing about the file containing garbage.  I dont know what happened.

Please post your exact error message from makepkg. Are you sure you have the md5sums in the right order?

Re: Logitech HD Webcam C270 - Chipmunk Sound

Either some steps on how to compile this patch into the kernel was left off or it just doesn't work anymore because everyone now seems to be having compiling errors.

Re: Logitech HD Webcam C270 - Chipmunk Sound

The above steps worked for me and others; I am trying to compile the vanilla kernel without the webcam patch now- it appears the i915 patch is the failure and not the webcam patch. I dont know what that patch accomplishes, but if you dont have a 915 chipset you should be able to just omit that patch and md5sum and it should build fine. I will edit this post once I get a result..

**EDIT** Read the output wrong- it is indeed the webcam patch. Building now to see..

EDIT2** Works for me:

Please note it must look the same as above, except you change the stuff next to the three vertical plus signs. As in my above instructions: { USB_DEVICE(0x046d, 0x0809), .driver_in... needs to contain the unique ID printed out by your webcam using the command

lsusb

prefixed by the 0x

The fact that these patches are giving you errors at line 17 suggests either the { USB_Device line is wrong, or you dont have all the lines in the patch. If this doesnt help you get it to build, respond to my post by putting your entire webcam patch file in code tags and also the output of lsusb (ensure your webcam is plugged in).

Re: Logitech HD Webcam C270 - Chipmunk Sound

Well that seems to be my problem my mic.patch file had only the lines wiht the + instead of the whole thing.  For some reason I thought the only things I should have included in the patch file were those.  I'm redoing it now with the entire thing and changed my usb device id as specified by lsusb. And after just looking at the compile window i can see its working :-) so for anyone getting an error more than likely as GSF1200S stated either the device id is wrong in your patch or like me you didn't copy and paste the whole patch file.  Thanks again GSF1200S

Re: Logitech HD Webcam C270 - Chipmunk Sound

I am courious though I installed Arch to actually "learn" Linux do you mind telling me how you were able to look at the output file I gave you and determin the problem.  I need to learn these things so I can self diagnose problems more efficiant.

I did the same thing the first time I patched lxterminal-git trying to remove window hints. It seems the documentation is a little sparse for diff patching, though it is mentioned and some examples are given. Good to hear it worked and no problem smile

If anyone else has an issue, please post here with your patch file and the printout of lsusb. Until this situation is resolved in the mainline kernel (which is supposedly supposed to occur for many webcams in the next release, so well see), I will bump this thread confirming the patch works for me on any new kernels..

I am by no means a master at diff patching- I learned the basics to patch a terminal for no window resize hints (for use with pytyle), and to fix this problem. By looking at the output, i just noticed that indeed the webcam patch was failing. I noted it mentioned line 17, which incidentally is the same line that contains the ID of your webcam as stated by lsusb. I then figured that your patch either didnt have a line 17 or it contained the wrong information, so I figured id have you post it and see if I could go from there. I copied that patch directly from a bug report filed against the kernel, and simply modified it to match my webcam. I learned about patching via PKGBUILD/ABS reading a few wiki's and doing some trial and error.

I have found in Arch that I never run into Arch problems per se- it is always issues with upstream (upstream refers to development of the package/library before the arch packagers package them for Arch). This is an upstream issue with the Linux kernel, for example. Ubuntu and many other distros patch the hell out of upstream packages to keep things running smooth, but then that sort of makes sense on a fixed release system. In rolling release (as Arch is), its far too much time invested for a package that will be replaced shortly anyways. Arch devs/packagers prefer to leave stuff vanilla.

I took out what I thought were extraneous lines, too. I guess that was the problem. Will try again later, thanks for all your work and documentation on this.

Hmmm, can you post the results of lsusb please? (Just to verify)

Also, how about the contents of drivers/usb/core/quirks.c.rej? It should be in the src folder created in the build directory when running makepkg.

Ill see if I can figure it out based on what line 41 is, etc. Im kind of flying by the wire here since I havent had a similar failure (that I can remember).. You do have an up-to-date system and you have synced ABS right? Just making sure..

**EDIT** Also, 32 or 64 bit kernel? If nothing else, one of us should be able to provide you with a version patched for your webcam- mkinitcpio should take care of the rest when you pacman -U it in..

Re: Logitech HD Webcam C270 - Chipmunk Sound

So strange - not sure what's wrong. Everything was up-to-date & synced, but I started over anyway, resyncing ABS and updating pacman -Syu.

copied /var/abs/core/linux to working directory (~/dload/abs/linux), added the mic.patch, added that & md5sum to PKGBUILD, added the other line to PKGBUILD, and still get the error.

Re: Logitech HD Webcam C270 - Chipmunk Sound

I had some problems myself until I copied the patch directly from here - https://bugzilla.kernel.org/attachment.cgi?id=64722

Everything from "Signed-off-by: Oliver Neukum <oneukum@suse.de>" to "1.7.1"

Not sure why it made a difference, but could it have something to do with the BBCode code blocks or character encoding.... I don't know? Maybe the indentation is also important "@@ -41,6 +41,9 @@"?
