It works fine for me. Bjorn Luca are you running the latest glib and gvfs from SVN?
Comment 3 Björn Martensen 2008-02-12 18:52:17 UTC
i was running the last released versions, glib 2.15.4 and gvfs 0.1.6.
now i'm using glib 2.15.5, gvfs 0.1.7 and cheese 2.21.91, but the problem still persists.
only exception is, that i can now click buttons while the camera is trying to be detected, i.e. right after startup when i click one of the buttons really fast, it'll recognize the click. when the testsrc image appears, the ui is frozen again and i have to kill cheese.
Comment 4 Luca Ferretti 2008-02-15 21:07:09 UTC
It seems that commit for bug #516697 fixed my build...
Comment 5 Björn Martensen 2008-02-15 21:16:51 UTC
confirmed. cheese from svn doesn't lock up for me anymore either.
Comment 6 Jaap A. Haitsma 2008-02-15 22:28:51 UTC
Great. Closing this bug
