I got my PCVC680K working (using wxcam and ekiga for instance) after
I've installed F8 - a bit amazed 'cause I had problems w/ my pwc using
FC5.

Do you have anything related to pwc in /etc/modprobe.conf?
Are you able to test another V4L device/application? Is it shown by
lsusb (or /proc/bus/usb/devices)?
