The problem: A USB web-camera that is not recognized under Mageia; 
it works under Windows XP, and, used to work under Mdv 2010.0.

The camera does connect:
root at localhost:/home/ron # lsusb
Bus 003 Device 004: ID 0458:704b KYE Systems Corp. (Mouse Systems)

but no link created to /dev/video0

Is there a way to create that link manually ?
       A new koan:                                                    
               If you have some ice cream, I will give it to you.     
               If you have no ice cream, I will take it away from you.
       It is an ice cream koan.
