Like all who posts here, I have a problem
The built in camera on my laptop does not work. Unlike most people that post here, I don't care.
Unfortunately for me, there are some nasty side effects.
a) All tty's from 1-6 is constantly spammed with :
b) The process UDEVD is at 100% CPU all the time.
[incrementing number here] /build/buildd/linux-ubuntu-modules-2.6.22-2.6.22/dbian/build-generic/media/gspcav1/gspca_core.c : Failed to configure camera
c) Bootup sits long time and wait (likely due to this)
d) Log's is also being spammed with (messages/syslog/kern.log - all the same):
Now, if I can get it to work - great. But if it's quicker to disable, I will be just as happy

Here is lsusb output :
That is the mouse and keyboard listed there (just found out that Logitech keyboard is a re-branded Novatek).
