    Default Lenovo ThinkPad Edge 15: lsusb doesn't list webcam

    Hi folks,
    I just bought a new laptop and I decided to try OpenSuse 11.4 so this is my first post here.
    The problem is this: lsusb is not able to recognize my integrated webcam and hence i'm not able to make it work.
    This is the lsusb output:
    Code:
    lsusb
    Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
    Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
    Bus 001 Device 002: ID 8087:0020 Intel Corp. Integrated Rate Matching Hub
    Bus 002 Device 002: ID 8087:0020 Intel Corp. Integrated Rate Matching Hub
    Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0bda:0158 Realtek Semiconductor Corp. USB 2.0 multicard reader
    According to this page the usb id should be 17ef:480d but it doesn't appear in the list.

    If I try luvcview (after having successfully load the uvcvideo kernel module):
    Code:
    luvcview version 0.2.1 
    Video driver: x11
    A window manager is available
    video /dev/video0 
    ERROR opening V4L interface 
    : No such file or directory
    Any idea?
    Thanks in advance for your help!

    If a bus scan doesn't see the device, then either it is defective, or there is a
    bug in the hub driver. Has it ever worked? Could you download and burn some
    other Live CD such as GParted (http://gparted.sourceforge.net/livecd.php)? Boot
    it, open a terminal, and see if it shows your webcam. If it does, note the
    kernel version with 'uname -r' and file a bug at bugzilla.kernel.org. List the
    bug as a regression.

    If the Live system also does not show your device but it is working with
    Windows, then you will need to post a bug in that location, but not list it as a
    regression.
