Drivers OV511/OV518 Instalation Problems, Make doesn't work
 
Hi

After delaying it for some months now, I've decided that it's time to make this webcam to work already.

The cam I own it's a GE (General Electric) EasyCam Pro Model HO98064 and found out that it needs OV511/OV518 Dirvers which I've downloaded from http://alpha.dyndns.org/

Anyhow, I follow the directions to install it but I got the following error
Code:

make -C /lib/modules/2.6.12-1.1381_FC3/build M=/home/oscar/mydownloads/Drivers Camara GE /ov51x-1.65-1.12-mark modules

You have whitespaces in the path - /Drivers Camara GE /. This is a Very Bad Thing (TM) in Linux/Unix world.

From the output of Make, it looks like an error on the side of the developer. I would suggest asking him about it, but I'm not totally sure. Anyways, thanks for posting the information--you're a shining example of someone who has read (or doesn't need to read) "How to report bugs effectively" (Tatham).

What Emerson said. I can't believe I missed that :(

To clarify, whitespace itself is not so bad, you just have to quote it. The problem is that a fairly large amount of shell scripts are essentially buggy in that they don't handle whitespace and funny characters properly.

To fix it, put it in quotes:
Code:

make -C /lib/modules/2.6.12-1.1381_FC3/build "M=/home/oscar/mydownloads/Drivers Camara GE /ov51x-1.65-1.12-mark" modules

Well, it wont work probably, make is often run in multiple instances and I'm not sure one can quote everything. Normally make treats whitespaces as separators, for instance 'make install clean' installs and cleans sources. This really is not a shell problem.

I can't belive I have missed that.

Directories renamed w/o spaces and worked fine...

I've always said that if you want someone to help you have to let them help you instead of blocking their way...

I've read so many articles regarding this and seen so much topics stating "I need help" all alone, and sometimens I think to my self, Well, me too... but this is not the right place to ask for the help I need (lol)
