ov51x driver and gutsy upgrade

Asked by dimas869 on 2007-10-21

i upgraded my system to Gutsy and everything went good, the only thing i dont understand is when i try opening my camera in aMSN, XawTV or Camorama none of them find the video device (Could not connect to video device (/dev/video0)) and dont know if it has to be with Virtualbox configuration that anyways all of them were working good on Feisty.
i will appreciate your help!

this is what i get from dmesg:

Can you take a look in your /dev directory and look if you have a subdirectory called "video"? If yes, thenn the new device name is "/dev/video/0" or whatever is in that directory.
