I tried to run my ewbcam...
Module is loaded but no video device presen in /dev

hwinfo shows

85: USB 00.0: 0000 Unclassified device
[Created at usb.122]
UDI: /org/freedesktop/Hal/devices/usb_device_ac8_303b_noserial_if0

SysFS ID: /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:0b.0/usb1/1-7/1-7:1.0
SysFS BusID: 1-7:1.0
Hardware Class: unknown
Model: "Z-Star Microelectronics ZC0303 WebCam"
Hotplug: USB
Vendor: usb 0x0ac8 "Z-Star Microelectronics Corp."
Device: usb 0x303b "ZC0303 WebCam"
Revision: "1.00"
Speed: 12 Mbps
Module Alias: "usb:v0AC8p303Bd0100dcFFdsc00dp00icFFiscFFipFF"
Driver Info #0:
Driver Status: zc0301 is not active
Driver Activation Cmd: "modprobe zc0301"
Config Status: cfg=new, avail=yes, need=no, active=unknown
Attached to: #75 (Hub)

I added "blacklist zc0301" to /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist, because my webcam
should be supported by gspca_zc3xx module. But it's not.

After modprobe gspca_zc3xx, dmesg shows:
gspca: main v2.2.0 registered
usbcore: registered new interface driver zc3xx
zc3xx: registered

Still no video device :(

With zc0301 module anables, dmesg shows:
Linux video capture interface: v2.00
zc0301: V4L2 driver for ZC0301[P] Image Processor and Control Chip v1:1.10
usb 1-7: ZC0301[P] Image Processor and Control Chip detected (vid/pid
0x0AC8:0x303B) usb 1-7: No supported image sensor detected
usbcore: registered new interface driver zc0301
but still no device...

I read somewhere, that my webcam's model (0x0ac8:0x303b) is disabled in

#if !defined CONFIG_USB_ZC0301 && !defined CONFIG_USB_ZC0301_MODULE

{USB_DEVICE(0x0ac8, 0x303b)},

So how can I run my webcam?
