hi

it might help us more if we know a little more detail.

Post the output of this command for a start

Code:
lsusb
look into your /var/log/messages and post only those lines that relate to your webcam as well pls.

Then we might be able to tell you what kernel modules you need to load etc.

ok try modprobe usbcore and try lsmod again.

if you then get it working, try adding a full command in /etc/rc.local for usbcore like this

# ------copy and paste---

/sbin/modprobe usbcore
