Digikam and gtkam are both downloading the previously made pictures from the 
camera, which are stored in the internal memory of the camera, this is 
sometimes referred to as "camera mode". 

For GnomeMeeting, you have to use it in "webcam mode", and, lucky you are, it 
seems to be supported by the spca50x driver. For Info see:
and the linked  driver site on sourceforge ...

You have to install the package kernel-source, after this, do 
"zcat /proc/config.gz > /usr/src/linux/.config" (this gives you the config of 
the currently running kernel), "make dep" in /usr/src/linux/, extract the 
source package of the driver,and then follow the instructions the README.



PS: GnomeMeeting 1.00 will be released today! Packages for SuSE 9.0 should be 
available, and you can be one of the first ones to hold this in  your hands - 
or on your harddisk.
