/dev/video0 not created


I installed debian-ppc on Mac Mini G4 and attached a USB webcam.

Linux  2.6.32-5-powerpc #1 Mon Mar 7 22:49:07 UTC 2011 ppc GNU/Linux

lsusb shows the webcam, and lsmod shows the driver, but no /dev/video0 is 
created. The server is headless, so I only have remote shell access to this 
machine. When I attach the webcam to an i386 laptop running Ubuntu 10.10, the 
webcam just works, with nominally same driver (Linux  2.6.35-28-generic 
#49-Ubuntu SMP Tue Mar 1 14:40:58 UTC 2011 i686 GNU/Linux).

What do I need to do to get this working? Is there a fundamental reason why this 
might work on i386 and not on PPC? Is there a better list to ask this question?

I think I am subscribed to this list, although I never got a confirmation. I 
will not be offended if you copy me on any replies.
