why does my make for usbvision fail?


Hello,

I've downloaded the new kernel headers .. as a matter of fact I downloaded the entire kernel source for UBUNTU EDGY EFT.. still when
I try and do make from the usbvision src directory I get:
don@linux-laptop:~/Desktop/usbvision/src$ make
make -C /lib/modules/2.6.17-10-386/build SUBDIRS=/home/don/Desktop/usbvision/src modules
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.17-10-386'
CC [M] /home/don/Desktop/usbvision/src/i2c-algo-usb.o
/home/don/Desktop/usbvision/src/i2c-algo-usb.c:45: error: expected ) before string constant
make[2]: *** [/home/don/Desktop/usbvision/src/i2c-algo-usb.o] Error 1
make[1]: *** [_module_/home/don/Desktop/usbvision/src] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.17-10-386'
make: *** [default] Error 2
don@linux-laptop:~/Desktop/usbvision/src$

thanks for any advice you might have..
