Hi guys!

I'm trying to make my dvb usb key work on linux (debian Sid), so I've 
successfully compiled and loaded em28xx kernel module.
The problem is that after I've compiled and loaded em28xx, I can no more 
use my uvc camera, even if I try to unload (modprobe - r) em28xx or load 
(modprobe) or even recompile uvc module.

That's a bit strange. O_O

Do you know how can I make both video sources work with the same kernel? 
How can I do?

I've already asked to uvc maintainer, and he suggested me to write here 
-> here you can find even more informations.

Thanks a lot,

this way, it does a good job; but its defenders
are wrong in assuming it always works this way.
If the runners forget why the reward is offered
and become intent on winning, no matter how, they
may find other strategies--such as, attacking
other runners. If the runners get into a fist
fight, they will all finish late."
