After *very* many hours of trying, I have come to a complete halt in
trying to get it working.
Well, I didn't use the rpms to get mine working. I just grabbed the
gspca tarball, compiled it, it did the depmod stuff automatically at the
end of the compile, really slick!, then I fired up kopete (installed
with KDE) and opened it's config / video and there I was looking back at
myself. That's all it took. So, if you can recall all the rpms you
installed and can erase them, grab the tarball and compile it. If you
upgrade your kernel, you'll have to re make the package again. Ric
