  It shows driver: bttv, 
  card:BT878Video (LeadtekWinfast 20), 
  bus_info: PCI:0000:00:06.0

   I queried v4l-info /dev/video*, but the qiockcam is
     
   NOT there.

  I browsed /proc/bus/usb and found "Total 0" there.
  Further I queried : 
 " $ cat /var/log/messages |grep video & the result
is:
  drivers/usb/core/usb.c: registered new driver usbfs
  drivers/usb/core/usb.c: registered new driver hub
 drivers/usb/core/usb.c: registered new driver
quickcam       
 spca50x: no version for "struct_module" found: kernel
 tainted.
spca50x: no version magic, tainting kernel.

    I did : $ v4l-conf /dev/video1 & got :
            v4l-conf: using X11 display :0.0
            dga: version 2.0
           mode: 800x600, depth=24, bpp=32, bpl=3200, 
    
           base=0xd7000000
          /dev/video0 [v4l2]: configuration done .

> $xawtv -c /dev/video1
  I tried this and only TV display was there.
   Then # lsmod showed these modules :

  I am confused with these messages.Any clues with  
these inputs, please.
