I've cruised the google lane and found several sites that tossed you

could make a short file, in English, on how to actually make the darn

Thank you for any considerations due to my:
1.) Stupidity

I doubt

2.) advancing years

Ahh, wisdom and patience

3.) stupidity

Still doubt

4.) sore left foot

Okayyy then

5.) stupidity

We'll see


1) Download and install the RPM package 'usbutils' the following
command as root should do it: `yum install usbutils`

2) Reply with output of `lsusb -v` as root (the purpose of output is
to help determine actual chipset in camera

Hopefully, being  a "cheap" camera it will have a fairly
popular/generic and supported chipset

From there, other more knowledgeable than myself, or I will assit further
