Default Trust Webcam Support

Hi @all

I bought a "cheap" Trust Webcam (Spotlight 16429 - 0x62c0 0x0c45) and tried to use it on my OpenBSD 5.0 machine, with no success.
The cam is recognized only as ugen device and not as video device.

ugen0 at uhub0 port 1 "Trust Webcam Trust Webcam" rev 2.00/1.00 addr 3
---

So, is there a way to tell the uvideo driver, that this is an compatible device ?

Welcome!

Is there a reason why you have not installed/upgraded to OpenBSD 5.1?

Be aware that OpenBSD 5.2 is slated to be released in November which means that OpenBSD 5.0 will no longer be officially supported.

Supported USB devices are managed in three files: sys/dev/usb/{usbdevs.h,usbdevs_data.h,usbdevs} -- see the instructions in usbdevs for adding this device to the list of Trust products. As described in the instructions, you will still need to modify the appropriate driver's probe to match the device.

FYI: only two Trust products are listed in -current, which is beyond the upcoming 5.2 release:
Code:
/* Trust products */
#define    USB_PRODUCT_TRUST_OPTMOUSE    0x0a33        /* Optical Mouse */
#define    USB_PRODUCT_TRUST_MOUSE    0x0a37        /* Mouse */

Yes, the risk and the effort are high, because of dependencies to php (versions).
I choosed OpenBSD for my server-os because of small requirements and security. So I hope(ed) I can use an version for more than some months.

The OpenBSD project releases new version every six months, & each version is only supported for only one year. More details can be found in Section 5.1 of the official FAQ.

Older versions are maintained in the CVS tree, but ports may no longer build if upstream projects change their configurations, change domain names, etc.
