Dotan.

I too am having problems with my Logitech Quickcam Chat. This is how I
installed it.

1) Install the kernel-devel package.

2) Go to http://mxhaard/download.html and download the
gspcav1-20070110.tar.gz
tarball.

3 Untar it.

4) As root, in a terminal, cd to its untarred folder.

5) Type   make  (./configure isn't needed)

6) Type   make install

7) Type   modprobe gspca

8) Type   modprobe snd_usb_audio

9) Reboot

Others may tell you a better way, but this way has been successful
with me and it is very quick to do.

This has installed the webcam, and it works well in aMSN. However,
although it works in kopete, I can't get kopete to actually send or
receive a picture!

Thanks, Keith. I'm saving this email for when I install in the next
few weeks. Of course I'd prefer a working Kopete, but this might be a
good chance to try out the latest Gaim||Amsn if it doesn't.
