Kernel 2.6.27 broke a lot of web camera support. If you want to use zoneminder you have to use 8.10 or lower. Or pull the older kernel down from the mainline PPA and use ksplice to upgrade the kernel or recompile yourself.

Is this bug still active?

Many newer kernels have been released since 2010.
