Description of problem:
I can't use my Labtec Webcam on a Fedora box since I've upgraded to kernel 2.6.27. I know it appears as not tested here (http://moinejf.free.fr/webcam.html), but I'd like to use my webcam again on the newest kernel available for Fedora.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
9 and 10

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. On F9, follow the instructions described here (http://hansdegoede.livejournal.com/6317.html).
2. On F10, open Cheese and try to anything (photo or video) with the webcam.
Actual results:
Kernel freezes.

Expected results:
See the image on screen.

I can help you with more information about my hardware or doing anything to collect debug information. Say me what you want and I'll do it. The only thing I need is to use my webcam again. It was supported by the old gspcav1.
Comment 2 Leonardo 2009-02-09 08:28:45 EST
This is a big problema for me. My webcam was supported by the old gspca driver running on a kernel older than 2.6.27. With the new libv4l, it stopped to work and it's very important for me. I don't want to use Fedora 8 (unsupported) or another distro only to make my webcam work again. This is a kernel/libv4l/gspca problem, cause I can't make it work on Ubuntu 8.10.
Comment 3 Leonardo 2009-04-16 08:41:04 EDT
This problem doesn't occur anymore in kernel available since yesterday on updates-testing repository.
