Default problems with MS life cam VX5000 and V4L

Hello
I am running Lenny. I have a Microsoft Life Cam VX5000 usb camera. This camera works like a charm with skype (v 2.1.0.47), chesse and luvcview. But it doesn't work with ekiga. Each time I run ekiga I get the message:


Error while opening video device Microsoft LifeCam VX-5000A moving logo will be transmitted during calls. Notice that you can always transmit a given image or the moving logo by choosing "Picture" as video plugin and "MovingLogo" or "StaticPicture" as device.

Your video driver doesn't support the requested video format.
Apparently, it is a problem with v4, l:
$ v4l-confv4l-conf: using X11 display :0.0

dga: version 2.0X Error of failed request: *XF86DGANoDirectVideoMode**Major opcode of failed request: *136 (XFree86-DGA)**Minor opcode of failed request: *1 (XF86DGAGetVideoLL)

*Just in case the output of lsusb is:

My video card is a Radeon 9100:


*$lspci.....01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Radeon R200 QM [Radeon 9100]....
I am googling looking for a solution, but with out success. Any help will be welcome.


Thanks in advance, regards
Marcelo

Hi!
sorry for answer my own email... but the problem with ekiga was solved installing the libpt-xxx-plugins-v4l2 packages, and choosing the v4l2 plugin*in the ekiga video configuration.


Regards
Marcelo
