Description Lubomir Rintel 2010-05-09 07:10:18 EDT
Description of problem:

Plugging in my webcam and running cheese yields results that are hardly pleasing. Upstream commit 721ecbcbea61df76490b3ba03c7dded7134e628c fixes this.

Comment 3 Jay Fenlason 2010-07-09 13:53:11 EDT
This missed the deadlines for 6.0, so I'll try to get it into 6.1

in a Red Hat Enterprise Linux maintenance release. Product Management has 
requested further review of this request by Red Hat Engineering, for potential

Comment 5 Cameron Meadors 2010-12-08 14:11:37 EST
Is this hardware specific?  The summary makes it sound so, but there are no details in the comments about how broad this bug is.
Comment 6 Lubomir Rintel 2010-12-08 14:21:20 EST
Yes, this is hardware specific. I don't have a more specific figure than "quite common in cheap desktop webcams."
