Thought I'd throw this out to you to see if anyone might have an idea. I
had today off and I decided to spend it trying to get my digital camera
working FBSD 5.3. So far my efforts have been thwarted. (I know, I know,
I need a life.... sadly enough though, I've enjoyed every minute of this)
The camera is an HP Photosmart 733. Nothing special, but fine for my
Anyhow it has a USB interface and uses SD cards.
Here's what I know from todays adventure:
* umass is in the kernel
* gphoto2 does not support the camera
* the camera is detected correctly on ugen0 at boot or when plugged in
on the fly
* I don't think, based on my reading today, that the camera uses umass,
as no umass info appears in dmesg, and I do not have any da* devices in
/dev (from what I read, if the camera used umass, I should get a da0s1
device in /dev )
It seems that the easy answer is to simply purchase a supported card
reader and forget about using the camera directly, but I'm not going to
do this, as if it comes down to it I can use my Windows machine. This is
more for the experience than anything else.
Anyhow, I'm just wondering if any of you can think of what else I might try.
