    /dev/video0 [v4l2]: no overlay support

    I'm running 8.10 (intrepid), fully updated, and I cannot seem to get my Belkin USB VideoBus II usb dongle to work. I keep getting "no overlay support".

    I should probably also point out that my lsusb command hangs, as does xsane, not sure if that is related.
