I'm in the process of setting up a UVC compliant camera to by BB
however I'm hitting
a wall when trying to install the uvcvideo package....

opkg update
opkg install kernel-module-uvcvideo

However I keep getting this error:

Unknown package 'kernel-module-uvcvideo
Collected errors:
* opkg_install_cmd: Cannot install package kernel-module-uvcvideo.

I can see it in the

Any ideas?

As you are doing it for BB , so you have source code also ,
enable uvcvideo support , with menuconfig , and compile it .
It will work , as i did same for pandaboard .

If after plugin the camera you can see the device /dev/video0 then it’s already installed in your system.
uvcvideo is a very common driver and it usually comes installed in the Linux kernels.

In Ubuntu 11.10 for Beagleboard and in Angstrom for Beaglebone it comes by default.
