Thank you for contacting Intel Customer Support.
Could you please give me more details about your setup?
What camera are you trying to attach through USB?
What power supply are you using?
Can you try running /sbin/lsusb and dmesg and send me the output?
Where you ever able to use the camera with the Intel Edison board?
Thank you very much in advance for your answer.
Following up on my previous post.
Can you let me know what your setup is and also answer the rest of the questions?
This way I can easily find a solution to your problem.
Thank you in advance,
If the device is not shown as /dev/video0, could you please check if the Edison is recognizing the camera using the lsusb command:
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0003 Linux Foundation 3.0 root hub
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 046d:0809 Logitech, Inc. Webcam Pro 9000 <--- This is our video device
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Afterwards, please check if the uvc driver is installed on the Edison, this can be done by executing the command below. It will return something similar to the described output below.
root@edison:~# find /lib/modules/* -name 'uvc'
/lib/modules/3.10.98-poky-edison+/kernel/drivers/media/usb/uvc <--- Installed
If no output is returned then try to install first using opkg, and check if the device shows under /dev:
root@edison:~# opkg install kernel-module-uvcvideo
root@edison:~# ls /dev/video*
Let me know if this works.
