linux (Ubuntu)

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]
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.

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:

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 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'.

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
