ok, well, i think i figured something out: i did not have either libxml2 or uvcvideo installed.
so i think i now have libxml2 installed, i went through some process on the web and it seemed to work, no error messages.
but now, when i try to install libwebcam, it says the 'uvcvideo.h' file is not defined, then gives a few functions that i assume are defined in uvcvideo.h and says they are not defined either.
so how do you install uvcvideo.h? no idea....
thanks, much appreciated!
(here are the errors i get
libwebcam.c:48:22: error: uvcvideo.h : no such file or directory.
then it gives me "Error 1" in Libs/libwebcam/Cmakefiles/webcam.dir/libwebcam.o and Error 2 in 'all'
thanks for any help!
