    Exclamation Built-in webcam installation problem


    Hello!
    I hava a laptop with a webcam built in the screen. The device works on winxp but after trying the install on mandriva 2005 and suse oss10 the same problem is: after switching on the wabcam with a special button on the top of the keyboard, the new device is not found! How can I activate the device? Do i need special drivers or things like that?
    Could somebody help me? Thanks

    After you turn it on try running
    Code:
    dmesg
    from a console. Have a look at the output and see if there is any mention of your camera. Post back the last 10-20 lines of the output.
