How to detect the webcam on laptop with RHEL 5 server edition?


I have successfully installed RHEL 5 server edition on my Compaq Presario C773TU laptop. But I cannot detect/start my webcam. How to do it? And how to play an mp3 file on RHEL 5 server edition? Thanks.

did you buy the teck support and for the software updates ?
if not then you might want to look into using CentOS 5.3
http://www.centos.org/

it is the community SUPPORTED RHEL 5.3

you might also want to look at the Cent wiki for adding it's repos to the UNSUPPORTED RHEL5 if you did not buy the updates from redhat.

for mp3 's and other media see
http://wiki.centos.org/TipsAndTricks/MultimediaOnCentOS

If you paid for the redhat updates and for the teck support then call red hat .
