Camera is identified as and using 2.6.27 and the new library with
from the command line on rare occassions we are returned an error -5, most
of the time it works fine.
Camera: Ezonics EZ-368
USB ID: 093A:2468
-5 == EIO, we only return that (I/O error) if something really went wrong (like unplugging the device). The best I can come up with is that your usb port / connector / the cam is flaky. I've reviewed all code paths in the pac207 driver and the gspca framework returning EIO, and I can find no reason for this to happen other then hardware malfunction. So I'm going to close this bug.
