if you just want to have it working, create a file named eg "video"
in "/etc/modprobe.d/" and put the following line there
options pwc compression=0
As ekiga atm only uses qcif, and qcif can be transferred uncompressed over
usb, this works quite fine, and saves you a lot of trouble
Just remember to rmmod and modprobe the pwc module after the change.
