I’m used to Ubuntu and I’m quite new to OpenSuse. I just installed OpenSuse 11.0 on a HP laptop. I’m pleased with the distro but I have some problems.
Cheese used to work just fine detecting the integrated Webcam but I installed Xine and Totem-xine (which removed Totem-gstreamer) because I had problems playing avi and mpg videos even after installing the packages from packman and all the other packages that I could find that would play those videos. I read somewhere that the problem is gstreamer so I decided to give Xine a try and it now works fine.
However, Cheese doesn’t work anymore, I don’t know why. aMSN still sees my webcam correctly though. I tried installing every package having webcam driver in its description and it installed a new version of the kernel, but didn’t make any difference.
I would be grateful if somebody could help me on this one.
I too am having same problem…HP Webcam (Chicony variation), Opensuse 11.0, Gnome, 64-bit…was working…I updated my kernel this morning, so I am going to compile it against my kernel w/ the build dependencies…I’ll see how that goes and report back…
