View Full Version : [all variants] Odd eyetoy installation

August 20th, 2008, 09:06 AM
I have followed this guide (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=272328) to install the eyetoy in Ubuntu. I understand that I have to replace "1.0.0" or "0.5.8" with "1.5.8", because the rastageeks website kept updating the files, and the first post is never updated. I also have to replace "sudo insmod /lib/modules/`uname -r`/extra/ov51x.ko" with "sudo insmod /lib/modules/`uname -r`/extra/ov51x-jpeg.ko", and "sudo insmod /lib/modules/`uname -r`/extra/ov519_decomp.ko" doesn't work anymore.

In this installation, I ended up with just neon colors in XawTV.

Is there a way to uninstall the eyetoy driver without re-installing Ubuntu? Or is there a way to fix the eyetoy driver?

Also, I have disabled "ov51x" in "hardware drivers" (I don't remember the actual title). Will the eyetoy driver be fixed if I re-enable it?
