    What hardware are you trying to access? There is a uvcvideo kernel
    module. Try running, as root, ...
    modprobe -v uvcvideo

    I am trying to access a webcam. This one is a Creative Live! Cam Video IM
    Pro. It currently is not seen. kdetv cannot find any devices for example.

    modprobe showed this:

    [root@localhost alan]# modprobe -v uvcvideo
    insmod /lib/modules/2.6.24.4-1mnbcustom/kernel/drivers/media/video/v4l2-common.
    ko

    According to http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Webcam_Setup the kernel
    module is most likely pwc. Try loading that module with "modprobe -v pwc",
    then connect the webcam, and see if anything shows up in /var/log/syslog.

    Interesting. These are the last few lines of syslog:

    choice

    Neither kdetv nor skype could 'see' anything though.

    I also have a Logitech Quickcam Pro 5000 that I could never get to work
    properly with Skype. Here are the syslog lines after connecting it instead
    of the 'Creative'

    Nov 4 22:30:31 localhost kernel: usb 1-6: USB disconnect, address 4

    Nov 4 22:30:37 localhost pulseaudio[5166]: alsa-util.c: Device hw:1 doesn't
    support 2 channels, changed to 1.

    Both KDETV and Skype detect it. The former cannot get a signal regardless of
    settings and the latter just about gets a small strip across the top of the
    screen image. I keep hoping that one day.....

    Thanks anyway,

    Regards, Alan

    According to http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=3872489
    that one will eventually be in the m560x kernel module.

    The dkms-m560x rpm package on Mandriva fails to compile, but looking
    at the source, that version doesn't yet include the above usbid.

    Looks like that one will have to wait.

    According to http://linux-uvc.berlios.de/ that camera may, or may not work.
    See notes 1 and 2 at the end of the device list.
    If it does work, it'll use the uvcvideo kernel module.

    So try "modprobe -v uvcvideo", then connect the quickcam, and see what shows
    up in /var/log/syslog.

    Try running "modprobe -v uvcvideo", then "modprobe -v usbvideo", then
    connect the quickcam Pro, and see if /var/log/syslog shows the /dev/video0
    being created.
