Boot Freeze

when i boot (suse 11.0) it runs through the little bar. but then it stops. when i press F2 (verbose)it shows it has just stopped at a line. there is no error message. it just stops at:

/usr/src/packages/BUILD/gspcav1-20071224/obj/default/gspca_core.c: gspca driver 01.00.20 registered

to get it going again i have to press print screen which makes it continue. when the boot is finished suse works fine. would someone be able to tell me what this actually is and how to fix it please?

Thanks in advance

There may be an issue with the driver for your USB camera. Try unplugging it
for a bit and see if the problem goes away.

Unplug the camera.

Boot the system

Plug the camera back in.

Maybe.

{Grin} But it’s linux… you don’t need to boot very often. I thought it was
funny when Microsoft came out with “and Windows XP BOOTS faster too!”…
yeah… handy when you have to boot 10 or 20 times a day. less wasted time.

You could tell us about your camera. Since we don’t know anything about the
camera, I"m afraid we’d all be rather hard pressed to “magically” know about
it and provide a better solution than “unplug it”.

We have to work with the information we’re given. And you haven’t given much.

I’d say I did rather well considering…

There seem to exist some bugs between the gspca driver and the Logitech
Quickcam cameras.

http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=444314

That author says he must wait a long time before it continues.

There may be bugs in the current version. You could watch for a new version
to see if it helps with booting, or compile/install it yourself to test
things.

If it currently works well, then I would remove it during boot and watch for a
new driver version to be released. It can be installed (when it appears)
using the ‘update’ module in YaST Software, the ‘updater’ system tray applet,
or zypper.

The homepage is

http://mxhaard.free.fr/download.html

More information could be found if you could provide the USB product/vendor
codes for that camera. They may be found by typing:

lsusb

(you may need to install the ‘usbutils’ package for the lsusb application)

Look through the output to find the one with your camera. Need the ID
xxxx:xxxx numbers just before the names. (or just post the whole thing!)
