Webcam installation


Hey guys! I've got this problem: I installed my Philips Camera on my linux system with Red Hat 9...I compiled ov511 and loaded the required modules: ovcamchip, ov511 etc...Now I upgraded the kernel, but the new one cannot use the ovcamchip module 'cause it was compiled for the old kernel (makes sense!). But if I try to recompile ov511 with the new kernel, of course it doesn't work....Can somebody help me? This is frustrating....

PS: the new kernel is 2.4.20-20.1.caps.rh90
