Webcams do not work in 2009

Recommended Posts

Hi, yesterday I installed on my laptop Mandriva 2009 and on my desktop I've updated 2008.1 to 2009. But on both computers it stopped to work the web cams. I've used dkms-gpca package before but now it is missing. What to do? How to fix my web cams to work back?

 

A little output from lsmod and lsusb from my desktop.

Here is the output from lsmod

[root@icobgr icobgr]# lsmod | grep gspca

gspca_zc3xx 51328 1

gspca_main 23936 1 gspca_zc3xx

videodev 35712 6 tuner,bttv,gspca_main

usbcore 137712 9 ub,usb_storage,gspca_zc3xx,usbhid,gspca_main,uhci_hcd,ohci_hcd,ehci_hcd

 

Here is the output from lsusb

gspca is included in the official kernel now so there's no need for an external package. Can you describe the problem in a little more detail? 'not working' is not very informative. Thanks.

I have two computers.. One desktop and one laptop Dell 1535 Studio 15. On the desktop I had installed Mandriva 2008.1 and I upgrade to Mandriva 2009 but I didn't use the upgrade function but I made update of all packages from rpmdrake. On the laptop I made a fresh isntall of Mandriva 2009 from DVD. On both computers the web camera did not work. I can try to remove the dkms-gspcav1-1.00.20-2mdv2008.1 package. Maybe this makes some problem. But for the laptop I do not know what to do. Before I had Mandriva 2008.1 on it but I deleted and made a clean install of Mandriva 2009. On both computers I have sound problems too. On the desktop I can not use the microphone with the skype and on the laptop I do not have any sound at all.

 

Here is the promissed output from the laptop:
