Before this gets really nasty I have a good webcam coming and the
one I have that works just fine on WindowsXT gives you this on Linux:
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 046d:08f6 Logitech, Inc.
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
It appears that all the device sends is the company name. I hope the one
I am buying will send more to Linux.
As for Google lists, they are the single most confusing things I
have looked at. They are VERY poor. It told me nothing.
