Description Brent R Brian 2008-11-23 08:48:21 EST
Camera is identified as  and using 2.6.27 and the new library with

    LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so camstream

from the command line on rare occassions we are returned an error -5, most
of the time it works fine.

Chipset: PAC207
Camera:  Ezonics EZ-368
USB ID:  093A:2468
Comment 1 Hans de Goede 2008-11-25 14:51:03 EST
-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.
