 What kernel are you running?

2.6.24-24-generic #1 SMP Tue Aug 18 17:04:53 UTC2009 i686
OS: Ubuntu 8.04.3 LTS

What video-related modules are loaded? And which version are those?

Can you give me a simple command to display that information?

Sorry to sound so ignorant, but in looking in Synaptic, I could not find any webcam-specific packages installed, apparently the only applicable packages appeared to be Ekiga, and Skype.

I tried installing and running cheese, to see whether that would capture videoclips, after reading the above message and searching for packages, but cheese displays only a test pattern, and no input from the webcam.
