a wall when trying to install the uvcvideo package....

As you are doing it for BB , so you have source code also ,
enable uvcvideo support , with menuconfig , and compile it .
It will work , as i did same for pandaboard .
If after plugin the camera you can see the device /dev/video0 then it’s already installed in your system.
uvcvideo is a very common driver and it usually comes installed in the Linux kernels.
In Ubuntu 11.10 for Beagleboard and in Angstrom for Beaglebone it comes by default.
