Logitech Quickcam 5000 on Fedora 7

Ok. I wouldn't consider myself a Linux noob but I guess I haven't really had that much experience in installing a piece of hardware post install.

I'm trying to get my Logitech Quickcam 5000 to work on my Fedora 7 install but I'm not having much luck. I have tried compiling the linux-uvc drivers from http://linux-uvc.berlios.de/ and I also remember doing something with gspca stuff too and I have completely confused myself.

Kernel Version is:

ls /dev | grep video gives:


dmesg | grep video gives:

Boot video device is 0000:01:00.0
Linux video capture interface: v2.00
uvcvideo: Found UVC 1.00 device <unnamed> (046d:08c5)
usbcore: registered new interface driver uvcvideo
bttv0: registered device video1

lsusb gives:

Bus 004 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 005 Device 002: ID 046d:08c5 Logitech, Inc.
Bus 005 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 046d:c517 Logitech, Inc.
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000

Do I have to do anything to actually start the driver? I have rebooted and still nothing.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I apologize if I have missed something blatantly obvious.

By the way, here's some more information that might help...

A full 'ls -al /dev/ | grep video' gives:

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 6 2008-02-11 18:09 video -> video0
crw------- 1 root root 81, 0 2008-02-11 18:09 video0
crw------- 1 root root 81, 1 2008-02-11 18:09 video1

v4l-info gives:

general info
driver : "uvcvideo"
card : "UVC Camera (046d:08c5)"
bus_info : "0000:00:1d.7"
version : 0.1.0
capabilities : 0x4000001 [VIDEO_CAPTURE,STREAMING]


So I know it is in there somewhere, but when I try and open camstream, amsn, xawtv or even vl4-tool, they all give me no devices...
