Kernel problems!


Running Sabayon.
When I try to compile the SPCA5XX webcam driver, i get these error messages:

Code:
Building SPCA5XX driver for 2.5/2.6 kernel.
   Remember: you must have read/write access to your kernel source tree.
Code:
Kernel configuration is invalid.
         include/linux/autoconf.h or include/config/auto.conf are missing.
         Run 'make oldconfig && make prepare' on kernel src to fix it.
I did : 'make oldconfig && make prepare' but it didn't work.

Can I do something fix this? Something in the Linux Kernel Menu maybe?

Feedback warmly appreciated! Thanks in advance!

Who are you trying to compile this as. Make sure you have all the c libraries installed on your system. A quick google search showed that they are C libraries.

I have probably fixed the kernel problems.

I am trying to figure it out by reading these:

http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=148425

http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t...t-spca5xx.html

But still I can't fix it. I am very new to this, and working with commands and fixing the "tree" and all that.

Is it possible to make an easy guide out of all this...?

Thanks!
