Logitech QuickCam in Fedora 4


g'day,

im trying to get my webcam working in FC4 so i can use it with Kopete on MSN ( was using Gnome all this while and dint know i could use the webcam :P ) however im having trouble looking for the drivers. most ool said to use the philips drivers but they can be found due to some legal issues goin on with philips and release of their drivers on linux ( Logitech technology is Philips i think ). can anyone guide me through this please ?

thanx.

The link contains a link to other respective webcam pages where to download the drivers and insall from. my version is Logitech QuickCam and all except the 3000 and 4000 series direct me to this link:

http://www.smcc.demon.nl/webcam/


seems the roumers i heard were right. Driver support has been discontinued. any ideas on how to proceed ?

v4l means video for linux. It's a kernel module. Try a "modprobe videodev" as root in order to load this module. It should be included in FC4, which is user-friendly.
