    Sony Laptop Webcam error - Need help

    I got this msg from dmesg,

    [45429.982600] r5u870-0: capture abort: too many empty pkts
    [45451.910526] r5u870-0: capture abort: too many empty pkts

    [45538.951635] r5u870-0: registered as video0
    [45538.951699] usbcore: registered new interface driver r5u870

    If I did rmmod r5u870 and modprobe, as sa, I do get webcam working in # xawtv /dev/video0

    Any idea how to set this up for non-sa accounts.

    Got this msg, during wakeup from standby,

    [ 1280.436226] firmware: requesting r5u870_1839.fw
    [ 1340.436262] r5u870-0: Microcode file "r5u870_1839.fw" is missing
    [ 1340.436265] r5u870-0: Please see http://wiki.mediati.org/r5u870/Microcode
