Re: saa7134 surveillance




I have 2.6.28 version kernel(The default with ubuntu jaunty). But I
had checked the documentation of 2.6.29 and saw that the v4l framework
redesinged a bit...so I have to compile the 2.6.29 kernel to see all
the cameras? Nice...but I will try.
Anyway: Thanks for the reply!
