Setup Gentoo on Asus U30JC-QX010X : Part 4 - Webcam

In order to use the asus U30JC-QX010X webcam on Gentoo, I needed to enable a few options in the kernel (2.6.34-r2) :
CONFIG_MEDIA_SUPPORT=y
CONFIG_VIDEO_DEV=m
CONFIG_VIDEO_V4L2_COMMON=m
CONFIG_VIDEO_ALLOW_V4L1=y
CONFIG_VIDEO_V4L1_COMPAT=y
CONFIG_VIDEO_MEDIA=m
CONFIG_IR_CORE=y
CONFIG_VIDEO_IR=y
CONFIG_MEDIA_TUNER=m
CONFIG_MEDIA_TUNER_CUSTOMISE=y
CONFIG_VIDEO_V4L2=m
CONFIG_VIDEO_V4L1=m
CONFIG_VIDEO_CAPTURE_DRIVERS=y
CONFIG_VIDEO_HELPER_CHIPS_AUTO=y
CONFIG_VIDEO_IR_I2C=m
CONFIG_V4L_USB_DRIVERS=y
CONFIG_USB_VIDEO_CLASS=m
CONFIG_USB_VIDEO_CLASS_INPUT_EVDEV=y
CONFIG_SND_RAWMIDI=m
CONFIG_SND_RAWMIDI_SEQ=m
CONFIG_SND_USB=y
CONFIG_SND_USB_AUDIO=m
Added use flags :
media-tv/xawtv X alsa opengl
media-video/mplayer v4l v4l2
I only needed to emerge xawtv and mplayer. usbutils was already installed by hal.

Then, you can test your webcam :
mplayer tv://
