    Webcam Problems

    Hi, im having problems with my videocamera.I cant get it to work since i reinstalled linux.I used a program called Camorama, but now it doesnt seem to work, or more specifically it shows me this message:Could not connect to video device (/dev/video0). Please check connection.Now, that /div/video0 doesnt exist, so how can i "create" it so i can make my camera work again? or, if u know another way ill be glad to hear it. My video Camera is
    a4tech(Vimicro corp.).Im running mandriva Linux on KDE, and i check it in the Mandriva Linux Control Center.Thanks in advance.

    Hi StarScream3r,

    The following site is very useful, you may need to re-install the webcam driver, under your current linux kernel.

    Link to webcam home page....


    I hope this is of help.
