you have to install uvcvideo as a kernel module.

su -C yum install uvcvideo

Try
dmesg | grep Crystal
[ 22.116000] uvcvideo: Found UVC 1.00 device Acer CrystalEye webcam (064e:a101)

lsmod | grep uvc

Camorama and other applications that do not support v4l2 will not work. The webcam driver uvcvideo (linux-uvc) supports v4l2 only. v4l1 is officially deprecated.

To test, you can use Ekiga softphone or to take webcam snapshots use luvcview.

Make up your mind, did "nothing happen" or did you get a message to the effect "not found"? I need the exact message.

Do you have the repos enabled?

Of course, it may not have made it as far as you yet... see:
http://fedoraforum.org/forum/printthread.php?t=169555
... install from source.
