I don't understand how this is possible. Luc's driver is completely incorporated.
I checked it a couple of weeks ago personally.

Most likely it's a Luc's regression, same as Hugh hit in bug 185377, or other.

Comment 2 David Reed 2006-10-19 02:25:00 UTC
Stupid me.   On further investigation, the symptom comes from an "option pwc
index=1" line in my modprobe.conf that was required to make Saillard's driver
work when I built it separately.   Apparently that command is now no longer
relevant, and stopped the driver from loading and recognizing the camera.

Indeed it works fine in without that line.   I am happy.
