Ok, I got my /dev/video0 and also /proc/video.
But I can't open the video0 file after I connect my USB webcam.
The webcam appears in /proc USB fs but not in /proc video fs.
I'v got to mount /proc usbfs manually.
Do I have to do something similar with /proc video?
When I connect the USB webcam to my PC (same kernel) the character device looks like
crw------- 1 markus sys 81, 0 jan 1 1970 video0
and to dev board (connected or not)
crw-rw-rw- 1 root root 81, 0 Jan 1 1970 video0
I wonder about the group setting, sys and root? Important?
