I am using and webcam doesn't work with cheese neither in photo or video mode.

It worked before only in photo mode but I can't remember what the kernel was.

Need to test cheese with most recent 2.6.32 build; was working before.

Someone on gnewsense-dev mailing list did an ekiga backport; need to look into that.

Also should try Empathy.

I think cheese was working with some additional modules compiled - see if http://config.fsf.org/misc/linux-image- works for you with cheese (note that this version has no initrd, so don't put one in your boot.cfg)

Webcam works only with cheese in photo mode.
If you switch it to video mode it crashes.

it opens but no video is shown.
