    Cool Problems finding gspca


    Hi,
    On my quest to have a fully functional Skype run on Fedora 11, I have come across a package that will theoretically solve my camera problems: gspca

    I am trying to get this camera to work:

    Bus 006 Device 002: ID 045e:00f5 Microsoft Corp. LifeCam VX-3000

    A gspca man page i found claimed to support it. The issue is finding gspca.
    I read it was was contained in the livna repo

    I have added this repo :

    [root$this etc]# cd yum. repos.d
    [root$this yum.repos.d]# dir
    adobe-linux-i386.repo rpmfusion-free-updates.repo
    fedora-rawhide.repo rpmfusion-free-updates-testing.repo
    fedora.repo rpmfusion-nonfree-rawhide.repo
    fedora-updates.repo rpmfusion-nonfree.repo
    fedora-updates-testing.repo rpmfusion-nonfree-updates.repo
    livna.repo rpmfusion-nonfree-updates-testing.repo

    but when i try to install gspca no pachage is found:

    [root$this yum.repos.d]# yum install gspca
    Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit
    Setting up Install Process
    No package gspca available.
    Nothing to do

    I have spent a couple hours on google looking for alternatives but have only been able to find alot of links to missing pages.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

    The package was probably discontinued, since, as of Fedora 10, the driver was included in the stock kernel.

    You can try this guide for Fedora 10, might work.
