I found a bug in the kernel, who do I inform

Tue Dec 03, 2013 5:15 pm

Last year I was using my USB Eyetoy camera with motion quite happily and when I set it up again I found out it wasn't working. After trying out different kernels I've narrowed it down to this commit:

https://github.com/Hexxeh/rpi-firmware/ ... a94f6371aa

Any commits before work fine, whereas this commit and those past it cause the camera to not work, as evidenced by a few other people on the forums. Who is in charge of kernel development at the moment?

You need to report it on the raspberry pi github, by creating an issue.
