Question Intel Web Cam


I need some help finding drivers and software to run a "CS 330 Intel" web cam on Mandrake 9.1. The system sees it on Drakx but it does not run. I haven't tried anything I really don't know where to start. Can anyone help?

thanks

See http://www.qbik.ch/usb/devices/showdev.php?id=2011 (if that is your device id using command 'lsusb', and http://spca50x.sourceforge.net/ for more in-depth info.

Thanks faheyd
one more thing though I download it the driver and extracted to a new file, but I have no idea what to do next the documentation is not very clear I think it wants me to mess with the kernel, but I have no idea, do I have to copy it or make a symbolic link?
Thanks
newbie here

In the included readme, do
Quote
To build just the driver, simply use 'make'. (do make in the directory where you unzipped the file).
Compiling against the linux kernel 2.4 source tree, there should be no warnings at all.
If you compile against the linux kernel 2.2 source tree, you may see:

{standard input}: Assembler messages:
{standard input}: Warning: ignoring changed section attributes for .modinfo

This is OK. It's caused by a small bug in the 2.2 series kernel, whereby it outputs two modinfo sections. It doesn't affect the running of the module, however.

This version of the driver offers an automatic installation facility.
Use 'make install' to have the driver installed into your kernel modules directory, which is assumed to be /lib/modules/<version>/kernel/drivers/usb.
<version> is picked up from the currently running kernel, so if that's not the right place, then don't use 'make install'!

Unquote

That's about it, tell me what part you may not 'get'. Make sure you get the software driver specific to your kernel, via the 'uname -r' command in a console, at http://sourceforge.net/project/showf...group_id=28498 .

I've not used this software, nor installed it, just trying to help.

Anyone out there got specific experience with this stuff, feel free to step in.

Well when i download the driver and I extract to a diff. file, it does not list make, configure, or make install on that directory and when I try make {filename} it does not do anything. There is a file there but there is nothing to do with it. I think that it has to be put somewhere first I guess.
Thanks for the help again

1. When you have the original zipped file, move it to a 'temporary' directory.
2. cd to that directory
3. do 'tar -zxvf nameoffile.tar.gz' (that will unzip and untar)
4. do 'make'

you will see some stuff, hopefully nothing but good things will happen. read the readme again for furth info. Good Luck!
