View Full Version : [ubuntu] how to remove/circumvent the gspca_v032x module at boot

February 2nd, 2009, 12:43 AM
Hi guys,
I'm having some troubles installing a fresh ubuntu 8.10.
I'll tell you what the problem is: while installing, at the point "Loading hardware drivers..." the installation gets totally stuck!

After rebooting in recovery mode to see the kernel output, I realized that the system enters in a loop when trying to detect my integrated usb camera with the gspca_v032x module.

Here is the dmesg looped output:

[ 537.370514] vc032x: I2c Bus Busy Wait 0
[ 537.370524] vc032x: I2c Bus Busy Wait 0

[ 538.008549] vc032x: check sensor header 44
[ 538.009311] usb 5-4: USB disconnect, address 35

I tried to deactivate the module by adding some boot options (F6), like:

but they didn't give any solution.

Any clue?

Thanks in advance.

p.s.: here is my system...
Acer Aspire 5630
Intel Core2 Duo T5500 1.66GHz
