Logitech QuickCam Zoom
I just bought a Logitech QuickCam Zoom webcam, and whenever I plug it in to a usb port, my whole system completely freezes...no mouse, keyboard....I have to do a hard restart and unplug the camera to get my system working again. It seems to work in Windows, except for a microphone issue. But since, like the majority of you out there, I want to be completely free from Windows if at all possible, I would really like to get it working in Linux. Any ideas on what may be happening here?
Also, I downloaded Gyach-Enhanced-pYVoiceChat-1.0.3-1.i586.rpm because I read in another thread that it supports webcams, and when I tried to install it I got the following error:
Some package requested cannot be installed:
Gyach-Enhanced-pYVoiceChat-1.0.3-1.i586 (due to unsatisfied pygtk[>= 1.99])
do you agree ?
I downloaded the previous version (1.0.2-1) and got the same error. Again, does anybody know why this is occurring?
Some info about my system if it helps:
ABIT KD-7 Raid Motherboard
GeForce 4 Ti4200 video card
Soundblaster Audigy soundcard
Running Mandrake 9.2 on one hard drive
Running Windows 2000 Professional on another hard drive
Thanks in advance
