           Summary: spca5xx does not work
           Product: Ubuntu
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: i386
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: linux

This driver works if you compile it as an external driver. The one provided by
linux-image-2.6.12-8-386 does not work.

The output of "modinfo spca5xx" is:
filename:       spca5xx.ko
vermagic:       2.6.12-8-386 386 gcc-3.4
srcversion:     51F9399718D471302F9487A

while it should be:

filename:       spca5xx.ko
author:         Michel Xhaard <mxhaard at users.sourceforge.net> based on spca50x
driver by Joel Crisp <cydergoth at users.sourceforge.net>,ov511 driver by Mark
McClelland <mwm at i.am>

parm:           usbgrabber:Is a usb grabber 0x0733:0x0430 ? (default 1)  (int)

the only output is:
spca5xx: module license 'unspecified' taints kernel.

the size is much smaller:
