    I have installed uvc driver, gspcav1 but no result!
    I took a look here (for gspcav compatibility) http://mxhaard.free.fr/spca5xx.html and here (for uvc compatibility) Linux UVC driver & tools and as far as I can determine, your microsoft webcam is not supported at this time by openSUSE.

    You could always go back to the webcam supplier and ask for a Linux driver!

    ... also, since your webcam is not supported, this is a mute point, but you should not install both uvc and gspcav1 at the same time, as I have seen cases where they interfere with each other. Install one or the other (dependant one's web cam), but not both. In your case, neither appear to support your webcam.

    Thanks for the reply! I have seen there is no suport for those drivers! I have tried with the SN9C1xx but no luck! I heard something that with SN9C20X will work! I will try to see that!
    Cheers!

    I found the solution! If you look here you will see
    Experimental Support Available : 6242 624e 624f 6270 627b 62bb 145f:013d & 045e:00f4
    ! That`s right 045e:00f4 it`s for the Microsoft VX6000! Well the solution is here and it works not like i have been expected but it works! (like i said it`s experimental) I have tried with kopete and i don`t see me, i see only green lines and with skype works well...not great!
    Cheers!
