This means your system think it is running i586 and doesn't like the
module being i686.

Try

rpm -q --qf '%{name}-%{version}-%{release}.%{arch}\n' -f /boot/vmlinu*

and you will most probably see that you have i586 kernels installed.

If that's the case check out

after you fix the kernel to really become i686 you will find your USB
camera working :)
