webcam works in ubuntu natty (pc) but not in debian-ppc squeeze (mac mini g4)



Hi all,

I posted on this subject about a month ago but got no replies.

I want to set up a mac mini g4 as a video capture server, but there seems to be 
a problem with gspca in debian-ppc. I noticed that debian is using an older 
driver version as compared to ubuntu (2.7 vs. 2.9). Maybe I need a newer driver? 
Is the later version available for debian-ppc? If so, where could I find it?

Add unstable package sources and specify a later version of (what)?
$ aptitude search ~dgspca
returns nothing. Can someone tell me how to get this?

A diff of dmesg output shows the following for the two machines.
