    Hi Fran, it has been months ago since you got your webcam working on 
FC6 but I wonder if you recall where you got the information on doing 
it? I have a USB plugged Logitek webcam with mike that takes all kinds 
of software to get working on Windows. It sounds like a kernel rebuild 
is necessary.

    If your getting the huge amount of update stuff I am now as a new 
user of FC6 then the kernel you fixed may not be the your now using. Got 
to /boot/ and see how many kernels are there. You can direct which to use.
