    You can try downloading the drivers from the below link Linux UVC driver & tools

    and compile them for your kernel, and then you can test if it's working by downloading some video capture utilities from Video Capture | Linux App Finder

    Smile installation of webcam on rhel 5

    Extract the drivers that you have downloaded & from the shell CD to that directory and run these commands

    Step 1) ./configure ( this command will take some time to complete)
    Step 2) make
    Step 3) make install

    once the 3rd step is completed , your drivers are installed.



    Regards,
