Hi guys,

I`ve recently received Logitec QuickCam Express Plus and was wondering whether 
I can use it with freebsd. When I plug it in I see the following in messages 
ugen0: vendor 0x046d Camera, rev 1.10/0.00, addr 5 and the led on the camera 
is on. I`ve installed pwc (multimedia/pwcbsd from ports) but when I load the 
module nothing happens: I don`t see anything in messages and no /dev/video0 
is created. My system is FreeBSD 6.2-STABLE #4: Sat Apr 21 23:27:13 CEST 2007 
if that would be of any help.
So my question is: can I use my webcam. If yes how :) ? and if no, is there 
some way to change the answer to yes?
