Other Webcams

I have acquired a non-working webcam [F9]: Logitech QuickCam Go [win driver cd Quickcam 9.5 (2006)] At plug:

What can I do to test the improved code / does it apply to this model ?

Reply to other webcams (2008-08-07)

That webcam is not an other webcam, its one of the cams I'm testing with myself and it should work fine, if you want to test it yourself, install the latest kernel from rawhide and install libv4l from rawhide. Then on the cmdline do: "export LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so" (make that /usr/lib64 for 64 bit systems) and from the same terminal run a webcam application like ekiga or cheese, your cam now should work.

New webcam

Even using the compat trick mentioned previously, I couldn't get this camera to work:
