Description of problem:
When I install Fedora Core 2 I was able to use the Logitech Webcam Pro
4000.

When I installed Fedora Core 3 ( since RC1 up to test 3) when I plug
the camera  usbview  shows only snd-audio, but no camera.

Therefore I am not able to use it with gnomemeeting.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install Fedora Core 3 with no camera attached to USB.
2.Run usbview command.
3.Plug the usb webcam to the usb port. Usbview will show snd-audio 
but no camera.
    

Actual Results:  No /dev/video   or  (udev/video)  avalilable.

Expected Results:  To be able to use the webcam.

Support for these particular (Philips) cams was removed from the
kernel, upstream.  For now, you can patch it back in using a patch
from here, and recompile the kernel yourself:

http://www.saillard.org/pwc/

The particular patch below worked for me just fine with the
2.6.9-1.640 kernel, and it includes what used to be in the pwcx
package, adding higher resolutions:

http://www.saillard.org/pwc/linux-2.6.9-rc2_pwc-10.0.4.patch.bz2

There are also patches available here, but I can't speak for them
because I used the one from above:
