Search the forums for "udev experiance and tips" or something.  You need to reset your sound and camera permissions in /etc/udev/permissions.d/udev.permsissions.

Re: Help, Sound and xawtv doesn't work after switch to udev

Thanks, after modify the groups from root to users  in /etc/udev/permissions.d/udev.permsissions, the sound works now. However, the xawtv still doesn't work and there is not /dev/video0. Should I modify some configuration file of v4l?

EDIT: I just created a symbolic link /dev/video0 -> /dev/v4l/video0 and it works now. Is it a good way to solve this problem?

Or you could just do
xawtv -c /dev/v4l/video0 -C /dev/v4l/vbi0
