Yes, it was my mistake to assume that the 2.6.30 kernel offered to me by aptitude search was from the stable repositories - I already have the lenny backports repository. However, I'm wondering why aptitude search and aptitude install show and install packages from backports when I'm not specifically using -t lenny-backports. That's a bit creepy. Nonetheless, I've installed linux-image-2.6.30-bpo.2-686 (I think the bpo stands for backport, but what does the .2 stand for? If a .3 was released, would I automatically get it when updating?) and the webcam is recognised properly - this solves my case. In fact, it doesn't work (merely a black screen in cheese), so I'll just return it to the shop. Anyways, thanks for the fast help, really appreciated!
