Problem with spca5xx on FC5


Hi,
I'm trying to get an Intel CS330 webcam to work with my FC5 install.
After much websurfing and googling all paths seem to lead back to either spca5xx or pwc.
I've tried install both and in both cases I get the following errors:

[root@localhost spca5xx-20060501]# make
Building SPCA5XX driver for 2.5/2.6 kernel.
Remember: you must have read/write access to your kernel source tree.
make -C /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build SUBDIRS=/usr/src/zm/spca5xx-20060501 CC=cc modules
make: *** /lib/modules/2.6.17-1.2139_FC5/build: No such file or directory. Stop.
make: *** [default] Error 2

Just for kicks I tried adding a directory called /build - but as expected no joy. Looking at the makefile didn't help me much either.

Any suggestions ?

Probably something really obvious :-)

BTW I have a BT878 card installed and that works just fine.

Thanks Tim

Install the running kernel source rpm then try again.

Kernel .....

Thanks for the quick reply...

FYI
I installed FC5 from an ISO image - the easy way, completely painless :-)
So I'm not sure what you mean - do you mean when I installed FC5 I missed some key source files / libaries ?


If so I don't understand how to install the running kernel RPM.

I could hazard a guess but worried I might mess up an otherwise good install.
