I have successfully installed a Ubuntu chroot (Maverick) on a running Linux appliance (an old Thecus N5200PRO box) which has been running various services for me quite happily.
When I attempted to add a webcam (for snapshotting) to this mix, I've come up against a problem. Since the chroot by default uses the kernel of the Thecus appliance, there appears to (understandably) be no support for the Logitech UVC webcam in the appliances' kernel; consequently inside or outside the chroot I can't access the UVC webcam.
I think I can get around this in a simple way if I can run a standard Ubuntu Maverick 32-bit kernel in the chroot. All my searches for a 'chrooting but with a different kernel guide' have been unsuccessful - plenty of helpful chrooting guides, but if kernel replacement is described at all, it's mentioned in unpleasant tones.
Does anyone know how to chroot with alternative kernels, or quite simply, how to get a UVC webcam accessible on a Thecus N5200PRO?
