webcam not working


I have an EZCam USB II Conexant, model number is P10UC. It works fine in Win98 on the same pc. Red Hat detects it in the hardware browser. I can not seem to get it running.

With camstream I get the following error:
[root@localhost travis]# camstream
CVideoDevice::ResetImagesRGB()
CVideoDevice::ResetImagesYUV()
CVideoDevice::ResetImagesRGB()
CVideoDevice::ResetImagesYUV()
CVideoDevice::ResetImagesRGB()
CVideoDevice::ResetImagesYUV()
CVideoDevice::ResetImagesRGB()
CVideoDevice::ResetImagesYUV()
Failed to open configuration file for reading.

and in camorama:
[root@localhost travis]# camorama
VIDIOCGCAP -- could not get camera capabilities, exiting.....

Any ideas on how to fix this?

webcams are really tough to get going in linux, you can search around for software for it, there is some, but not much
just cause linux detects it doesn't mean that it will work.
