[AG-TECH] Webcam on SuSe9.3]

Although I am not using SuSe, I am dealing with a similar issue with a
webcam. I am trying to get a Creative WebCam Live Ultra working on a
computer running Windows XP Service Pack 2. At one point, I had a good
configuration that seemed to work, but after some changes since that
point, setting up VIC to transmit using the webcam has been very
When I configure the service (VideoService), I have two choices of
drivers-- Creative's VFW driver of the Microsoft Win32 WDM (or something
similar to that). It seems that regardless of which I choose, I will
either get VIC to crash as soon as I transmit or worse, I get a blue
screen with something about IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL and a memory dump
(which is a very bad thing), and I have to restart the computer.
I have attempted with difficulty to try to update the webcam driver, but
this does not even seem to work properly.
On the bright side, I have replaced ANL's VIC with a VRVS VIC, and things
seem more stable than before. I cannot explain why that is, but I can
transmit generally without any problems.
If anyone could provide assistance would be appreciated in trying to
properly configure my webcam software to work with ANL's version of VIC.
One of the reasons I am using this camera is that it has a wide angle lens
built in that allows up to 3 people to be comfortably captured by the

I'm looking for suggestions of either.
a) How to get my current Logitech QuickCam Pro 4000 working under
b) A cam that works under SuSe9.3 with AGTK.
