On Gentoo we run compilations inside a sandbox system to prevent unwanted access to files and devices from "real" system. That way, we are getting now errors as gst-plugin-scanner wants to access to /dev/video0 directly.
Probably this access is due to a plugin loaded by gst-plugin-scanner but, as it doesn't show any more output than:
(gst-plugin-scanner:23320): Clutter-CRITICAL **: Unable to initialize Clutter: Unable to open display ':0'
(gst-plugin-scanner:23320): GStreamer-CRITICAL **: gst_structure_new_empty: assertion 'gst_structure_validate_name (name)' failed
- ACCESS DENIED: open_wr: /dev/video0
It's near impossible to know what plugin is causing this issue
The attached full build.log is from farstream-0.2.6, whose building calls gst-plugin-scanner and hits this problem
Thanks a lot
