Looks to me like gtkam is looking at/for another camera. Are you
sure that you've compiled in the driver for your camera, and have
configured gtkam to look for it?

Nope - normally usbdevfs and your usb module (ohci whatever) are
enough. You need to make sure that usbdevfs is mounted with -o
devmode=0666, but apart from that there's no big issue.
