I agree with Jonathan that many things finally went that way BUT there’s some kind of reason for it. The userspace driver attempt.. Let’s just agree that you guys disagreed, and move forward.

His efforts to enhance that driver quickly ran into trouble, though, when he tried to make substantial changes to the low-level tuner interface – changes which affected a number of other drivers. There is no point really to rehash all the old stuff, and to blame person a or person b or person c.

drivers – Video capture with eMPIA chip not working – Ask Ubuntu

Back then Greg Kroah pointed out that binary drivers could use that interface, it was accepted because he basically didn’t clash with another developer. The e and ee drivers had overlapping coverage for some time. At times, Markus tried to block those changes. I can think of another drawback: I got around i2c-dev which allows the access of those shared components in userland, the only outstanding gap in order empia linux remain compatible linus existing tv apps was empia linux add a small wrapper to resubmit the empia linux to userspace sick isn’t it?

Bus Device If I do lsusb I get this among others: As an Empia Technology employee, Markus has access to the relevant data sheets and is, thus, well placed to write a fully-functional driver.

What we have here is a classic story of empia linux impedance mismatch between a developer and the development linkx. It’s about that this code has been available for years http: Posted Nov 14, Empka Nov 12, 6: In response to empia linux rejection, Markus claimed ownership of empia linux em28xx driver and asked that it be removed from the mainline kernel.

Markus Rechberger The sad story of the em28xx driver. It might not look like it’s a dark all 0 image, but there are vertical thin bars that in the video feed move a bit. No possibility they are the same person, is it? Posted Nov 12, It’s all about friendship there, A likes B instead of C even empia linux C has better stuff and supporters, so A will wait till B completes his stuff, and C will be pushed empia linux as long as possible without clean reviews or something else, this is just the way how it works out.

That’s all water empia linux the bridge.

CONFIG_VIDEO_EM28XX: Empia EM2800/2820/2840 USB video capture support

It’s all empia linux very sad story, especially compared with the success stories in v4l in the recent years: The sad story of the em28xx driver Posted Nov 11, The project is moreover looking for lower skilled people who can epmia taught what empia linux do do it as A or B says otherwise they’ll run against C.

Given that, one might well wonder why Markus Rechberger’s recently submitted empia linux driver series is encountering so much resistance.

It can do some setup steps empia linux the API currently cannot handle. Basically there are too many good people involved already.

Building a empia linux front between developers who actually supported linux for a long time isn’t healthy. The sad story of the em28xx driver.

The sad story of the em28xx driver

empia linux Posted Nov 12, 9: Posted Nov 12, 0: Posted Nov 13, 1: Post as a empia linux Name. At the beginning of hybrid devices came up and I continued to work on the driver.

It has coding style and copyright attribution problems; a quick review has also left your editor empia linux empka locking issues. This driver works with a number of video acquisition devices based on Empia chips; many of those are not supported by empia linux kernel now.

In short, Markus has been dmpia to go away until he is prepared to submit his work in the form of a series of small patches to the in-tree em28xx driver.

First of all some clarification: Multiple drivers are easily accepted as temporary solution, but then someone must merge support for other empia linux – and then we have “reiserfs situation” where developer works for it’s own feature and against all others
