[Spca50x-devs] sonixj problems


I am trying to get my USB camera working on Debian (regular Etch install 
with all updates). gspca compiles well and when I plug in the camera the 
sonixj module gets loaded to support this camera (0c45:612a Microdia) 
and the /dev/video0 device appears - no errors or suspicious messages in 
kernel log returned by dmesg.

However, when I start streamer, I get the following errors:

jj@piw:~$ ./streamer -ddddd -c /dev/video0 -o a.jpeg
checking writer files [multiple image files] ...
  video name=ppm ext=ppm: ext mismatch [need jpeg]
  video name=pgm ext=pgm: ext mismatch [need jpeg]
  video name=jpeg ext=jpeg: OK

[]): Invalid argument

vid-open: failed: v4l

A problem (similar?) with motion as well:

jj@piw:/mnt/dane/samba/motion.src/motion-3.2.3$ ./motion -n -ddd -c 
[0] Processing thread 0 - config file 
[1] Thread is from /mnt/dane/samba/motion.src/motion-3.2.3/motion.conf
[1] Thread started
[1] ioctl (VIDIOCGCAP): Invalid argument
[1] Capture error calling vid_start
[1] Thread finishing...

The same problem when starting stream or motion from root account. Any 
Idea what is wrong?
