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. :disapointed:

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,


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