I got the Ezonics Ez-326 of newedd, because it was was on sale. when i plug it in, it is not reconized by skype, or the program cheese. I tried the EasyCam method of installing the driver, but i get this message when reloading the repositories:



Failed to fetch http://blognux.free.fr/ubuntu/dists/hardy/main/binary-amd64/Packages.gz 404 Not Found
Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.


If someone could give me another way to install it, or tell me what is wrong with that repository, i would be soo grateful.
