Thanks so much for taking care to reply but I think I did not make it clear that I had installed the atrpms package (and it wasnt working) before trying to compile and install (by changing the sensor type in the file Vimicro/zc3xx.h to see if that worked). I think my webcam sensors are not supported and I'll have to get another one. I've reinstalled the gspca rpms from atrpms and it still doesnt work
Thanks again for taking the trouble.

Maybe I'll wait till the sensors are supported

Ok So I've checked in Windows,
Using RegMon and the sensor is TAS5130C
But still I get a blank screen (Completely black output) on camstream, mplayer, xawtv and spcagui.
So I've no clue how to make it work.
Anyways thanks for all your replies.
