I have the same problem with a Pleomax webcam after upgrading to 11.1; the problem is related to the fact that in the webcam drivers’ repository Index of /repositories/drivers:/webcam/openSUSE_11.1
there are no longer the gspcav1 kernel drivers, which are needed for these kinds of cameras. Has anyone any idea why those drivers are no longer available ???
In v11 you only install the gspca driver/module and your up…
I think this driver was deprecated 'cause I did not find it… only the libv4l library, which must be preloaded in order to work with any app.
EDIT: BTW, this library works by far, much much better than the old gpsca driver.
