I have received a couple of replies that asked me questions. So to
I am running Linux 2.0.29 and using the qcam-0.91 driver written by
Scott Laird for b/w camera. On my development system (ASUS T2P4,
166 MHz Pentium...) the driver works in bidir mode perfectly. On
these other mboards (Elite Computer Systems, AMD-75 chip), the code
hangs when trying to talk to the camera. I have NOT tried it under
Windows with the Elite mboards. It would be quite a pain to do that,
though I might have to if I can't resolve this problem.
