I've an caer TravelMate 5720 and I'd like to use my webcam (Suyin).
I've read some docs and say that I should use uvc driver from kernel

contains user-space tools for USB cameras, so, if I use kernel driver,
How may I get the tools?
What tools are you talking about?
Anyone who is using uvc could explain me his experience?
the original driver was built outside the kernel tree and was called
linux-uvc. the driver has since been added to the kernel and is no
longer necessary. tools available include media-video/luvcview which is
only available for ~x86 and media-video/guvcview.
