Hi,

I am trying to get the webcam working with eBox 4300, I have installed USB cam driver from this site and I am trying to build the OS with the webcam subproject from the GeorgiaTech web site. So once include the webcam subproject do i need to add any more additional components to support the build or a regular build with induatrial device and internet compliance is sufficient.

 

Thanks in advance

Plz help

Thanks for the help guys I got it working the frame rate is a bit slow but its working(thats imp) i tried including the MJPEG compression filter but it keeps giving errors during the build donno why couldn't really get past that one.  I am still having issues with getting the COM port to respond properly so that i can control the robot, the funny thing is i worked with the serial port before and it worked perfect now its acting up.

I am trying to get one of the example apps from roboticsconnection to work i get the following errors

'Trax_Serv.exe' (Managed): Loaded 'mscorlib.dll', No symbols loaded.
'Trax_Serv.exe' (Managed): Loaded 'c:\documents and settings\xxxxxx\my documents\visual studio 2005\projects\trax_serv\trax_serv\bin\debug\Trax_Serv.exe', Symbols loaded.

any idea wht might be going wrong. i double checked the references everything seems to be in order. plz let me know if i am missing something.

the second test gave some diff errors
