Spca5xx flickering green!
I've managed to install the spca5xx drivers for gentoo. loading up the module creates /dev/video1 however , when i try to access it in either gqcam or xawtv, the picture seems to flicker and goes green instantaneously. Obviously this is highly irritating and I was wondering if this is a fault somewhere in the software and whether i should try installing an older version of the spca5xx driver? The output from xawtv is as follows and I dont know enough about it to knwo whether this may be the casue of the flickering
This is xawtv-3.94, running on Linux/i686 (2.6.17-gentoo-r4)

I have a logitech quickcam messenger webcam which works fine in windows and mandriva with old spca5xx drivers.... does anyone else have the same webcam ?
