    i am running linpus linux on my aao and it works fine except that the whole system freezes when i try to access the webcam (over the rightclick desktop menu and also via mplayer /dev/video0). the complete system freezes and i cant click or do anything but to hard-powerdown the system (power button).

    any ideas why this happens? i installed a few modifications (skype, firefox 3 (standalone, ff2 is still there), pidgin, thunderbird) and i turned of the standard interface and have a normal xfce desktop now.

    thanks for helping
