Built-in webcam RICOH not detected

After installing Skype (skype.com: fedora 10+) I could see and hear
my friends, but they only hear me.
Cheese: No device found.
Terminal (parts):
[root@localhost ~]# ls /dev/video*
ls: /dev/video* ...not found

[root@localhost ~]# lsmod

Re: Built-in webcam RICOH not detected

I am probably a bit late with the reply but just in case someone might still find it useful here is how I got my built-in video camera working on my VAIO in Fedora 15.

My laptop:

My camera:
Ricoh Co., Ltd Visual Communication Camera VGP-VCC8 [R5U870]

I installed the following driver from "Add/Remove Software":

R5U87x firmware and Loader
r5u87x-firmware-0.2.0-3.a9b2171d762b.fc14 (i686)

It seems that the driver is not included into the official list of available software for Fedora, add additional sources from here http://rpmfusion.org/Configuration and the driver will appear in the list of available software.
