that's 'cos the driver isn't loaded. i hope that suse comes with the 2.6 kernel, 'cos the driver should be on you computer already. If they are, then all you need to do is insert them into your kernel
i know it must sound like gibberish, but it's actually quite easy. If you think of the kernel as the brain, so the kernel is to linux what the cpu is to the PC(almost) and modules...well they're the drivers(probably more than that, but that's how i think of them).
so when you run lsmod, it gives you a list of all the modules which have been inserted and are running.
to insert a module you use modprobe [module name], eg. modprobe cx8800 and cx88xx
and seeing as video4linux uses i2c, it wouldn't hurt to insert i2c_core and i2c_algo_bit, maybe even v4l(i think that's module)
the two i2c mods might need to be inserted in a specific order, so if you get an error try the next one and do the other one after.
well my kernel has just finished compiling.... it's time for me to take a deep breath and reboot
