WEBCAM TRUST: How does Slackware see it?

Hi all.
After connecting the webcam this is the output of lsusb:

- Bus 1 Device 1: ID 0000:0000
Bus 4 Device 1: ID 0000:0000
Bus 3 Device 1: ID 0000:0000
Bus 2 Device 3: ID 093a:2468 Pixart Imaging, Inc. Easy Snap Snake Eye WebCam
Bus 2 Device 2: ID 045e:009d Microsoft Corp.
Bus 2 Device 1: ID 0000:0000

Microsoft Corp, is wireless keyboard and mouse.

Does anybody know how to use it?

The gspcav1 module that you need for your webcam is not included with Slackware.
But you can install a Slackware package from my site:
Slackware 12.0 or 12.1 package. After installing it, plug in your web cam and it should be useable. An application like VLC can show you the video feed from the cam.
