Unhappy Can't use webcam genius on Fedora Core 6


The question is, who do I do it?
I'm a linux newbie, so please tell me how to do it in a simple way.
I've searched un internet a lot, and I've found that the bridge model is OV511+, but there I didn't find a version for my kernel. (by the way my kernel it is the 2.6.19-1.2911.fc6)
The webcam model is the Genius Webcam Express (v1).
I really need your help,
thank you!

Have you tried here?

http://alpha.dyndns.org/ov511/

The download address is http://alpha.dyndns.org/ov511/downlo...2-mark.tar.bz2

You need to extract the archive somewhere on your system and then compile and install it. (You will have to have a suitable compiler installed on your system)

Go to a shell such as Bash. make sure that you are in the same directory as the place where you extracted it and type;

./configure [return]
make [return]
make install [return]

Good luck.

Hi, thank you for helping!

I tried configuring this, but I can't!

it says:
Code:
bash: ./configure: no such file
I've looked in the README, it says that for a quick install you need to do

make clean
make
(log in as root)
make install

but when I do make clean, it shows
Code:
[root@localhost ov51x-1.65-1.12-mark]# make clean
make -C /lib/modules/2.6.19-1.2911.fc6/build M=/usr/local/ov51x-1.65-1.12-mark clean
make: *** /lib/modules/2.6.19-1.2911.fc6/build: No existe el fichero o el directorio.  Alto.
make: *** [clean] Error 2
What's the problem?

Thank you all for helping!

Mi espaņol no es bueno.....but,

in order to install a great deal of Linux software you need the Kernel source code available. When you installed RedHat did you include the Kernel source? It would appear that it is missing and for that reason you can't install the file.

I am not familiar with RedHat but you should have an application that allows you to add software, including the Kernel source. (Perhaps someone else can help here?)

Hi!
Well, in another forum they told me that I should make a link from /usr/src/redhat/BUILD to /lib/modules/2.6.19-1.2911.fc6/build

and now the error is a little different:
Code:
[root@localhost ov51x-1.65-1.12-mark]# make clean
make -C /lib/modules/2.6.19-1.2911.fc6/build M=/usr/local/ov51x-1.65-1.12-mark clean
make[1]: se ingresa al directorio `/usr/src/redhat/BUILD'
make[1]: *** No hay ninguna regla para construir el objetivo `clean'.  Alto.
make[1]: se sale del directorio `/usr/src/redhat/BUILD'
make: *** [clean] Error 2
No hay ninguna regla para construir el objetivo clean means: There's no rule to construct the objective clean.

I think the source is installed, although I don't know very much of linux, when I updated the kernel, I think all the packages related to it were installed also, including the kernel-headers which I've seen they're installed.
How can I check if I have the source installed or not?

Thank you very much!
