    Default HP dv6420la webcam drivers and kernel version problem

    Hi guys,
    Yesterday I managed to install openSuSE on my HP Pavilion dv6420la (AMD Turion X2 TL-56, 3GB DDR2 800mhz, 320gb WD SATA HDD, Nvidia GeForce Go 6150) dual booting with Windows XP SP3.

    Last time I used a SuSE based distro was SuSE 8 and it was quite good, in fact is my favourite, but this time problems were quite a few. I got almost everything working thanks to this forum but my webcam and Compiz Fusion and despite is working, some app or deamon named Phonom says that Nvidia HDA is not.

    The problem is that whenever I try to install uvc drivers an error occurs and Yast says "Nothing provides kernel (default:drivers_media_video ... )"

    As far as I've read this is because driver's version differs from kernel's but I couldn't find any sollution to this problem.

    Thanks in advance,

    Pancho

    I followed this post Webcam on vaio - openSUSE Forums and I've found the drivers package in Webpin.

    Thanks,

    Pancho
