I strongly recommend that you buy a new webcam. This is ancient hardware.
Even the cheapest UVC webcams you can buy today will have far better
quality than a pac207. If you really, really need this to work, then I
need the full dmesg output and you also need to check if you can reproduce
this issue with the v4l2-ctl command:

v4l2-ctl -d /dev/videoX --stream-mmap

(it keeps capturing frames until you press ctrl-X)

I should have one of these webcams, but won't be able to test until next
week.

Regards,

	Hans
