I too am having problems with my Logitech Quickcam Chat. This is how I
1) Install the kernel-devel package.
2) Go to http://mxhaard/download.html and download the
3 Untar it.
4) As root, in a terminal, cd to its untarred folder.
5) Type make (./configure isn't needed)
6) Type make install
7) Type modprobe gspca
8) Type modprobe snd_usb_audio
Others may tell you a better way, but this way has been successful
with me and it is very quick to do.
This has installed the webcam, and it works well in aMSN. However,
although it works in kopete, I can't get kopete to actually send or
receive a picture!
