HP Pavilion dv6000 Laptop / Kubuntu

 A couple months ago I got an HP dv6700 laptop. It was a pretty good price 
<$800, dual core AMD Athlon, 2G RAM, 160G hard disk, wide screen, 
wireless, etc. 

Kubuntu worked great with a few exceptions: 

The wireless card does not have a native driver and needs NDIS Wrapper 
The headphone jack did not mute the speakers when a headphone was plugged in. 
The built in webcam does not work. 

The headphone jack issue has been corrected in the latest alsa driver packet. 
Alas the webcam stubbornly still refuses to work. 

This message has been scanned for viruses and 
dangerous content by MailScanner, and is 
believed to be clean.
