How to check my integrated webcam

I have a Dell laptot Inspiron 1720 with an integrated webcam and openSuse 11.0. The webcam does not work. Is there any software to check or configure the webcam?

Many times the integrated web cam is simply a hardwired usb web cam.

Hence follow the advice here: HCL/Web Cameras - openSUSE

as root in a console:
hwinfo log logfile.txt

Then search for “cam” or something.
