About 2 hours ago I updated my Breezy installation and compiled/installed
spca5xx in order
to use my Creative Notebook Webcam.
I report the problem still exists:

mloskot at dog:~$ cat /var/log/messages|grep spca
Sep 25 01:13:04 localhost kernel: [ 7664.585128] spca5xx: module license
'unspecified' taints kernel.

I have module loaded but seems unused:

mloskot at dog:~$ lsmod | grep video
videodev               11904  0

mloskot at dog:~$ lsmod | grep spca
spca5xx                86192  0

mloskot at dog:~$ lsusb

When I try to run camorama, webcam or other webcam software I got message below:
mloskot at dog:~$ webcam
reading config file: /home/mloskot/.webcamrc

v4l2: open /dev/video0: No such file or directory

As I understand, inspite of comments to this bug, the bug is still unresolved right?
