Logitech QuickCam Pro 5000


Hello People

Here I'm again with some questions, I bought a web camera, Logitech QuickCam Pro 5000, and I want to install it on Fedora Core 4, but I didn't find any UVC driver, can you tell me which is the best UVC driver and the installation process?

Regards and always thanks for your answers.

Regards From Japan

Find out which chipset it uses and if it's supported. First thing is to search LQ for threads about your brand and version webcam and check the HCL for compatibility and instructions. If nothing turns up then try to find out more about the chipset from the documents that came with it, the vendors site and searching teh intarweb. If nothing turns up then start by plugging in the device, use "lsusb" or "usbmodules" or "lshwd" command to see if any modules got loaded and look at your syslog (most likely /var/log/messages) for messages about USB. If it returns any info like Vendor ID strings use that to search the Linux-USB device overview website. If you post (error) messages make sure you post *exact* ones.
