Default How to let user to use the web cam in Fedora 8?

Hello,

I have installed the Logitech Quickcam Messenger by using the kmod,
but only root can use the webcam. And I need to change the ownership
from rw-r--r-- to 766 rwx-rw-rw in /dev/video0 every time after I
reboot the machine.

Would any method can do this automatically every time when I reboot ?
Is is related to udev?

Thanks,

Best Regards,
Wong Kwok Hon

Tell the list *exactly* what you did, don't make us guess. Then we've
got a fighting chance at helping you.

What you've said is as undescriptive as saying "I started my
installation with the keyboard."

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.
I read messages from the public lists.

Did you try adding your user to "video" group?

Could be.

See:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=439622

I also had the same problem with my ibm webcam. You must file bug
against it, so that the developers take necessary action against it.
Since this is selfhelp community driven os, we have to calibrate the diff
pieces ourselves or through proper communiation with others.

HTH!

Do u meant create a user group of "video" and add the users and root
into it ? but the permission is crw------- so only root can use....
