The driver gspca v1 is not maintained anymore. You must use the gspca
v2 which is in the Linux kernel since 2.6.29. If your Ubuntu kernel is
older or if you have problems, you must take a tarball or a clone of the
last media mercurial repository at LinuxTv.org. Look at the file
gspca_README.txt in my page. BTW, as nobody tested this webcam yet,
I'd be glad to know how it works.
