During the boot process, it appear this error:

startpar: service(s) returned failure: udev

It seems to be a problem for the "mounting" of the webcam device:

dmesg | grep udev
uvcvideo: Found UVC 1.00 device USB 2.0 UVC VGA WebCam (13d3:5710)

I have an Asus X53S.

I've also looked for a solution in, but I just notice that udev has lots of issues in Wheezy.

Could you include more detail? Like, relevant /var/log/syslog parts? Have you tried starting udevd yourself (i.e., in a terminal)? – sr_ May 18 '12 at 12:36
If I start udevd in my terminal, the command goes in a loop. in /var/log/syslog never appear udev or other similar things. – Kyrol May 19 '12 at 17:37

After an error reporting to Debian (but nobody answer to me directly), I decided to upgrade my kernel from 3.0.0-3-amd64 to the newest 3.2.0-3-amd64, and the problem during the boot seems to be disappear. Now the webcam works well. The problem with udev seems to be fixed with this kernel version.
