In order to figure out exactly what device it has, what is the output of the following command with camera connected?
su -
lsusb

A little googling suggests that the gspcav1 driver might support it. Have a look at this (french site)

"0c45:628f Microdia Composite Device"

That's your webcam the first part is the manufacturer code 0c45 and device code is 628f. When I search Google for that I see some ubuntu posts about not being able to find a working driver for it but that's it.

you should google for the model of the cam and try to find a "kmod" (kernel module) for your particular cam. Chance are there's one out there since some awesome contributor wrote a driver for it.

Hello all,
I am new to fedora and linux generally. my webcam not working since it is not supported. but i saw it is supported by uvc
i have installed the uvc driver ans make install is done. i also configured yum to support Tspms.

still it is not working, it is appearing but up on testing no image is found.
the lsusb output:

malath, did you install the new version with the new kernel? (2.6.25.10-86.fc9.i686 )

Because i had uvc and it was working, but now with the new kernel, the new uvc-kmdl-2.6.25-10 is not working anymore.

I guess the option is wait for a new update of uvc.

Anybody else got uvc not working after the kernel update ?

this is my kernal version
[malath@localhost ~]$ uname -a
Linux localhost.localdomain 2.6.25.10-86.fc9.i686 #1 SMP Mon Jul 7 20:46:03 EDT 2008 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

is this the new one?? if yes, any way to restore the old one?

yes it's the new one, i don't know how to restore the old one

but i suggest you to wait a bit more as you're not the only one :)

they will probably (i hope so) update a new one soon

hey malath, my webcam just started working back again for no reason.

Then i remembered i just removed today FlashBeta2 from my comp (because it sucks) and went back with the Flash-plugin9.

What flash do you have installed?

I'm not sure if that is the issue, but it was in my case.
