This problem is known for everyone who has ASUS or Acer notebook and uses its webcam.
Provided default library to use camera gives us up-side-down view.
I wrote a post how to permanently fix this bug on Skype, but the fix doesn’t work for all applications. You can still meet this bug in Firefox, Chromium and any other application which can use your web-cam.
Once I had an idea to write a Munin plug-in to monitor temperatures on my server
Since a long time I have Munin on my PC to monitor some data like ping time:
It is enough to remove config file from /etc/modprobe.d/
After installing Skype on oS (and other distros) view from web-cam is upside down, to fix it we must install one library and replace the new one with one provided with Skype.
1. Install missing library (and dependencies):
sudo zypper in libv4l1-0-32bit libv4l-32bit libv4l
2. After that log in into a root account:
3. Turn off skype!
I check today some old CDs, some of them were from ’90 so of course they didn’t work. With one of them was a problem with reading… and ejecting CD-ROM. My PC wasn’t able to eject the CD even calling this command from root:
eject sr0 -rm
[ 1067.416522] Buffer I/O error on device sr0, logical block 0
[ 1075.923084] sr 1:0:0:0: [sr0] Unhandled sense code

[ 1075.923130] end_request: I/O error, dev sr0, sector 0
[ 1075.923137] Buffer I/O error on device sr0, logical block
The CD wasn’t mounted, there was only a thread for the device, which wasn’t even mounted (I also wasn’t able to mount it from root):
umount: /dev/sr0: not mounted
root@Agilob-PC:# lsof /dev/sr0
COMMAND PID USER FD TYPE DEVICE SIZE/OFF NODE NAME
blkid 4079 root 3r BLK 11,0 0t0 7203 /dev/sr0
root@Agilob-PC:# kill -s 9 4079
Worked for me!
