I'm using an Asus laptop with a built-in webcam and getting the
upside-down image problem that's been previously reported [1] but the
LD_PRELOAD solutions aren't working for me.  I've installed libv4l-0
0.8.3-1 and skype (from for amd64), and running
an x86_64 kernel.  These commands

LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/ skype
LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib64/libv4l/ skype

give an "ERROR: object '/usr/lib64/libv4l/' from
LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded: ignored." warning but skype runs.
This one

LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib32/libv4l/ skype

doesn't give that warning, and skype runs.

In all 3 cases, the webcam image is still upside-down.  Any other
