Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I just Installed Slackware 10.0 and I need to enable my Logitech Webcam, I did somethings that didn’t work, let me show you:
First I modified the /etc/rc.d/rc.Modules
##USB devices support lines
#IBM “C-IT” USB video camera
/sbin/modprobe ibmcam framerate=1
#USB OV511 camera support
#USB Kodak Dc – 2xx camera support
/sbin/modprobe dc 2xx
#usb Mass Storage support
/sbin/modprobe USB – Storage
Also the line for
###USB event drivers
#generic event reporting device
I checked in the info center if the usb device was available
And it showed this:
USB OHCI root HUB (1)
USB OHCI root HUB (2)
Class 255 (vendor specific class)
USB version 1.16
Vendor ID 0x46d (Logitech, Inc)
Product ID 0x870 (Quickcam Express)
Max packet size 0
then tried xcam and didn’t work
Finally I add a Camera Device to the desktop and when tried there was an error:
“error not mount device”
“mount: can’t find dev/usb in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab”
My question is.
If the info center recognize de usb device why xcam doesn't work?
What is the steps to make it work properly?
