I managed to eliminate all frame overflow errors. I multiplied frsz by 8 in frame_alloc (v4l-dvb/linux/drivers/media/video/gspca/gspca.c). webcamd was reporting many `gspca: found int in endpoint: 0x83, buffer_len=2, interval=50'. Attached is the script (someone may find useful) that I used to check if any settings will work with the webcam. The webcam still does not work. Again vga was set to a lower resolution than what it should be and sqcif was at a higher resolution that what it should be. Will it matter if my kernel is a bit old (about 3 months)? Are there any (small) live linux distros that have good webcam support (so that I can check if the cam works at all with gspca)? David
