    Unhappy Lenovo y510 webcam issues

    Hi,

    I have just purchased a lenovo y510 and the first thing I did was take M$fail off (after making sure everything worked correctly)

    I am very happy with everything, except maybe the battery life, but i haven't had a chance to look in to that yet, any suggestions would be nice, but i am most concerned about the web cam.

    I know there are a few gigantic forums covering ubuntu and the y510 but when web cam issues arise there, they never seemed to get solved.

    cheese recognizes the web cam, but always freezes

    when I type dmesg i get this:
    Code:
    [   17.757722] uvcvideo: Found UVC 1.00 device Lenovo EasyCamera (046d:09b6)
    [   17.760889] input: Lenovo EasyCamera as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1d.7/usb7/7-6/7-6:1.0/input/input9
    [   17.781049] iwlagn 0000:03:00.0: PCI INT A disabled
    [   17.784167] usbcore: registered new interface driver uvcvideo
    [   17.784171] USB Video Class driver (v0.1.0)
    I am using intrepid

    any help (even on battery performance) would be much appreciated
