What is module-assistant trying to tell me?


I'm trying to install the gspca drivers for a Creative webcam in Ubuntu Hardy on a Thinkpad t60.

Module-assistant tells me "compiling my drivers has failed". Can anyone tell me what to do next? I see this "CFLAGS" comment--what does it mean?

This is my log file:

Code:
