Does anyone know how to use the C6 as a webcam in Linux (I can detect the sd card though). I'm running kerne 2.6.15-26-386, ubuntu. Nothing shows up in /dev/vidoe when I connect the camera and choose pc camera mode on the C6 lcd. Does anyone know of a module that I could load to get it working? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

According to Sanyo webcam only works under WinXP SP2... but it works without drivers, so it must be using a relatively new USB webcam standard interface.And someone using a Mac got it working using Skype (see link below), so there must be a way to make it work under Linux with a recent USB webcam standard/generic driver.
