    Default acer orbicam

    Hello, I can't get my webcam to work on OS 11. In live mode the camera is correctly detected and it works, but after the install the boot takes a long time and this message is shown:

    ...

    This message repeats itself over and over and boot time becomes several minutes...and the camera doesn't work!

    The only workaround is to blacklist the gspca module but it sounds stupid because basically the hardware is rightly deteced!

    Thank you

    As you note, it doesn't make sence. Any chance your gspcav rpm is corrupted, but still managed to get installed?

    How about removing it and any associated config files? Reboot without it installed and confirm your boot time is fine.

    And then re-install gspcav from a clean download.

    Hi, sorry the delay but I could try only now. Anyway I tried to uninstall and reinstall the module (gspcav1 and gspcav) but nothing happens...maybe I don't get what you mean by "associated config files"..I only uninstall it with yast..am I wrong?
    thank you

    I think there should only be gspcav1-kmp-default-yourkernel. There should not be a gspcav.

    Hi, what is the output from:

    #lsmod |grep video

    You should see something like this:

    videodev 48000 1 gspca

    If you have another driver before or after "xxx gspca xxx" try to remove them:

    #modprobe -r xxx //xxx is module name
    then remove and gspca and reload again:

    #modprobe -r gspca
    #modprobe gspca


    All steps whitout unplug the webcam

    hope this help you

    Best regards

    P.S Sorry for my bad english :-(

    Hello I unistall gspcav and the camera works but the problem is that the message I wrote before is still there and boot time is really long (few minutes)!

    Here there is the message from lsmod

    clo7@koi:~> lsmod |grep video
    videodev 35712 1 gspca
    v4l1_compat 17284 1 videodev
    video 27024 21
    output 7936 1 video

    Is there a way to unload the module at boot (without blacklist it) so I can load it when I want to use the webcam?

    Thank you one more time!
