    [SOLVED] Squeeze sees ALi Corp. Video Camera but it doesn't work


    Hi, I'm a newbie here.
    I have installed squeeze and kernel 2.6.32-3
    Also I use the USB webcam Asus.

    A week ago I installed lenny, my webcam didn't work, then I made upgrade to squeeze and my webcam worked! I don't know why
    Yesterday I have installed the system again, the base system as lenny (net-install) and then squeeze. But webcam doesn't work

    Excuse me, but the issue is solved. I've forgotten to install hal and gnome-device-manager, after that the camera is ok
