Sorry for making new thread

Question: i have trust webcam wich i was able to use on gentoo with old kernel config i made, sadly because i did not knew what specific modules/codecs are used in the kernel i had to build in too many modules.
I lost this old kernel .config

I am cluess on what modules i need in the kernel for this trust webcam to work.
Also on secondlife online i can not seem to get voice chat working, i had it working on a previous install, now i am stuck.

Any pointers?

Steps taken:
Build in multimedia + v4l + usb gadjet support + sound codecs and alot more modules :( however, when emerge cheese webcam works, sound works with both pavucontrol and alsa.

On the secondlife and firestorm client, no sound voice devices are detected.

Using stable gentoo hardened profile

*edit*

Cheese works with:
Under Multimedia support you need [*] Cameras/video grabbers support
[*] Video capture adapters ---> and [*] V4L USB devices --->
In that last menu, you need the drivers for your webcam(s). (I used all drivers)

However, on secondlife and firestorm viewer i have no input output devices under sound voice

            [*]   UVC input events device support

niceflower,

UVC is becoming more popular these days, so there is a good chance fedeliallalinea is correct.

If that does not work, post the output of lsusb so we can see your webcam information.

OP stated it works in Cheese, so everything must be OK on kernel side.

I will test it later, i am away from keyboarkd now.

Yes cheese works, but for facebook and secondlife webcam to work, it seems some sort of (audio video) codec is needed.

Ty fede, i build in those modules, webcam works on cheese, however on secondlife viewer and firestorm viewer it can not find any sound input output devices, but i almost think since webcam is working, it might not be gentoo related.

niceflower,

Sound input from a webcam requires snd_usb_audio support in your kernel as its a USB Mic.
The webcam drivers only provide video.

Ok neddy, i followed your advise, those are build in too.
The problem seems to lie within the secondlife/firestorm viewer

Secondlife Voice have always been a trouble spot on linux i guess it just works or it does not work
