weird problem

i have been running xawtv for over 2 months without problems, but then this error popped up

This is xawtv-3.78, running on Linux/i686 (2.4.19)
seteuid(root): Operation not permitted
v4l-conf had some trouble, trying to continue anyway
WARNING: v4l and x11 disagree about the screen size
WARNING: Is v4l-conf installed correctly?
WARNING: v4l and x11 disagree about the color depth
WARNING: fbuf.depth=16, x11 depth=32
WARNING: Is v4l-conf installed correctly?
WARNING: v4l and dga disagree about the framebuffer base
WARNING: fbuf.base=(nil), dga=0xd0000000
WARNING: Is v4l-conf installed correctly?
WARNING: overlay mode disabled
if i do su and then run v4l-conf it gets fixed, but each time i reboot, i have to do that again, in root.
anyone know why this happens?

it's not a xawtv problem it's v4l (video 4 linux), have you upgraded your kernel recently -- could be a possible but, have you upgraded X?
