Genius VideoCam Eye Problem

Postby Guest on Wed Feb 27, 2008 7:47 pm

please help!!!! i'm gonna kill myself, i'm gonna drink a poison, shoot myself in the head, hang and burn myself etc.

my genius videocam eye was working for about half a minute, and then suddenly died. i have installed gspca drivers, and everything seemed to be
allright, i have started cheese and it was ok. but, when i started xawtv, screen went black and i had to restart computer. after that, my poor little web camera isn't working. BOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

btw, when i do 'lsmod | grep gspca i get

gspca 680912 0
videodev 29312 2 gspca,sn9c102
usbcore 138632 6 gspca,sn9c102,usbhid,ehci_hcd,ohci_hcd


when i do lsusb, i get

Bus 003 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 002 Device 003: ID 0c45:6007 Microdia
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 0000:0000

The camera is there and the driver seems ok
Can you get images in some other application than cheese?
