ARGH!

If the two of you would have taken the time to read the thread instead
of playing "who's the biggest jack-ass" you'd notice that:
A. This has nothing to do with the kernel module - in both cases (Mine
and the OP) the webcam works just fine under non-kopete applications.
B. There's a bug in Kopete that breaks the MSN accept/reject webcam
cycle.
C. At least in my case, kopete freezes out from time to time once the
webcam is active. 

As as I said up the thread, my webcam works just fine under both amsn
and mplayer.
Once I'll have some free time I'll open a BZ in kde.org and try to help
them sort this problem out.

Geez!
