Bug Description

In my PC (Intel E2160/Ubuntu 8.04 i386) were tuner: Leadtek WinFast TV 2000 XP Expert (PCI) and USB webcamera Trust WB-1100G (Sonix sn9c10x). WHEN there were together it was hard to order the camera to work. I had to do:
sudo rmmod gspca && sudo rmmod sn9c102 && sudo modprobe sn9c102
sudo rmmod sn9c102 && sudo modprobe gspca

After this 2 steps (in terminal) in Skype my webcam start to work and it changed a name of device from:
SN9C1xx Pc Camera (dev/video1) [works badly, green screen, I couldn't use it]
to:
Sonix sn9c10x + Pas106 sensor (dev/video1)
And OK, it works. But, I had removed my tuner and I reinstalled my OS. After reinstall my webcamera is aleready: Sonix sn9c10x + Pas106 sensor (dev/video1) without any work in terminal, without errors, just to work perfect. So I think there is so hardware conflict between thise two elements: Leadtek and Trust.

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. This bug did not have a package associated with it, which is important for ensuring that it gets looked at by the proper developers. You can learn more about finding the right package at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Bugs/FindRightPackage. I have classified this bug as a bug in linux.

The Ubuntu Kernel Team is planning to move to the 2.6.27 kernel for the upcoming Intrepid Ibex 8.10 release. As a result, the kernel team would appreciate it if you could please test this newer 2.6.27 Ubuntu kernel. There are one of two ways you should be able to test:

1) If you are comfortable installing packages on your own, the linux-image-2.6.27-* package is currently available for you to install and test.

--or--

2) The upcoming Alpha5 for Intrepid Ibex 8.10 will contain this newer 2.6.27 Ubuntu kernel. Alpha5 is set to be released Thursday Sept 4. Please watch http://www.ubuntu.com/testing for Alpha5 to be announced. You should then be able to test via a LiveCD.

Please let us know immediately if this newer 2.6.27 kernel resolves the bug reported here or if the issue remains. More importantly, please open a new bug report for each new bug/regression introduced by the 2.6.27 kernel and tag the bug report with 'linux-2.6.27'. Also, please specifically note if the issue does or does not appear in the 2.6.26 kernel. Thanks again, we really appreicate your help and feedback.

I have changed the OS to Ubuntu 8.10 64bit. My leadtek tuner works fine, but skype doesn't "see" any video devices. Skype is a 32 bit application, works fine. :(

According to the last comment, this issue is solved for the tuner but still a problem for the webcam. As this is the same as bug #280657 i'm marking this as a dupe from that one.

Thanks for your report and help
