That's a pity... because there is no 2.4 version of Luc's driver as far
as I know :(

I don't use a 2.4 kernel, so i can produce patch for older kernel, but i'll
not test them. If someone want a 2.4 kernel tell me, and i'll try to mande
a patch using difftools. I prefer to add features like v4l2, than
supporting and testing old kernel (or writing documentation).

Understandable. I'll look into getting the other box upgraded, tho the owner of it is kinda reluctant to do so.

I don't think you have to.
The latest release from nemosoft is not in the kernel anymore, but still

It is supposed to still work with 2.4

Is this driver also supporting the Logitech Quickcam for Notebooks? I
found some references that the 'official' one used to do that, but I
can't find much docs...

As far as I know, yes. The source code seems to indicate the same.

If the old driver supports, mine too (minor some very old webcam).

Ok, good to know. Would be nice tho to have some actual 'confirmation' of this fact before I run off to spend money ;p

From the philips.txt included in the above reference:

As of this moment, the following cameras are supported:
* Logitech QuickCam Notebook Pro

(Note the 'Pro', this might be important!)

And as Luc said, once you upgrade to 2.6 you will have the same
support with his driver.
