    Syntek webcam and Hardy

    Back in 7.10,my syntek webcam worked only by much hassle with the sytnek drivers.
    I am pleased to see that Hardy now detects my webcam correctly.Camorama gets the image from the webcam,so do other programs.Only problem is this: the image is upside down.

    In Gutsy,when this occured I'd just

    Code:
    sudo rmmod stk11xx
    sudo insmod stk11xx vflip=1
    But it doesn't work now,because it complains that no stk11xx module was found.What should I do to get normal image back?

    P.S.:Can't wait to use KDENLive to make videos recorded with my webcam

    Cheese works nice,thanks

    Altough my webcam still is upside down in programs like Kopete,it`s no problem.I`ll use messenger in XP when I need webcam.

    Thanks again,Nicolasto!

    Ubuntu rocks,as usual!
