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

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