Hey Guys

Looking for a fix for the current problem I am having with the Web Cam driver.. I was able to get it working fine in 10.10 and 10.04 with Skype however I can't get it to work with 11.04.

I can install the driver fine and get it to work with VLC and Camorama. The problem I have is that it does not work with Skype.. Now I know a new Skype patch was pushed out fairly recently this may have broken it?

INFO:
This is how i got it to work with 11.04 :
http://doc.ubuntu-fr.org/syntek

mkdir syntek
svn co https://syntekdriver.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/syntekdriver/trunk/driver
cd syntek
Get the custom make file : http://ubuntuone.com/p/pQQ/
(some times have to edit the stk11xx-sysfs.c and stk11xx-v4l.c)
make -f Makefile-syntekdriver
sudo make -f Makefile-syntekdriver install
sudo modprobe stk11xx

... works fine works for VLC etc..

When opening Skype it finds the Cam, but when testing it only turned on LED for 1.5 sec and drops to black screen:
dmesg |tail
