The uvc video drivers for web cams are reported to be included in Ubuntu, but appear not to be available on the Sheevaplug.  I have not been able to find anything in the repositories which seems appropriate.  How does one load the modules which will recognize web cams?  lsusb shows:

Bus 001 Device 003: ID 046d:09c1 Logitech, Inc. QuickCam Deluxe for Notebooks

"ls /dev/video*" shows nothing, as does "dmesg | grep video".

I plug a camera in and dmesg throws errors (not good).
usb 1-1.2: new full speed USB device using ehci_marvell and address 8
usb 1-1.2: not running at top speed; connect to a high speed hub
usb 1-1.2: unable to read config index 0 descriptor/all
usb 1-1.2: can't read configurations, error -71

lsusb shows nothing. bummer. This is plugging the camera into a hub without a reboot. Maybe the hub I have _is_ usb 1. Same hub does not say the usb mem stick is slow, but that may be the device... I have noticed that the usb device keeps incrementing with each insert/removal. Started at 6, now at 15. Uses about 3 addresses each time it is plugged in.

You may have to compile the kernel modules and insert them as you need.

One way to get a more recent kernel and kernel module is http://openplug.org/plugforum/index.php?topic=92.0
