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 have a Z-Star Microelectronics Corp. Sansun SN-510 WebCam [hv713d]. I installed the Mandriva dkms spca5xx pacakge, as well as a lot of other rpms required because of dependencies amounting to 303mb. All installed according to plan.
But I cannot detect the spca5xx module or make my Asus laptop integrated webcam work.
I also installed the Mandriva Multimedia kernel at the request of RpmDrake because of dependencies.
I am running Mandriva 2007 Free KDE Destop.
Can anyone help?

The webcam is detected under Bus 001 Device 005, etc. which is a slight advance.
I don't plug in the cam as it is integrated into the computer.
Lsusb output shows the HW device is detected hich is OK, http://www.qbik.ch/usb/devices/showdev.php?id=3283 (just to make sure) shows the cam is supported by kernel and spca50x so that's definately OK, and AFAIK the only dep is videodev (or is it V4L2 on 2.6?) so the next step could indeed be to check if the modules got loaded. Also check your system logs for any related output. Since you don't plug it in it'll only be shown around bootup time.
