SPCA5xx and 10.0 compile problems
Good afternoon all,
Currently trying to get my Intel Creat & Share webcam operating. Cs330 model.
I have downloaded the latest SPCA5xx driver and have run into some compiling issues.
There is a link to my /usr/src/linux-2.6.3-7mdk directory.
The following is a print out from my terminal window :
[root@localhost spca5xx]# make
Building SPCA5XX driver for 2.5/2.6 kernel.
Remember: you must have read/write access to your kernel source tree.
make -C /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build SUBDIRS=/usr/share/spca5xx modules
make: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-2.6.3-7mdk'
*** Warning: Overriding SUBDIRS on the command line can cause
make: `arch/i386/kernel/asm-offsets.s' is up to date.

According to the readme there shouldn't be any issues... But as you can see there seems to be some sort of hardware configuration problems. "lsusb" does identify my webcam as being there if that matters at this time.
This sort of thing is new to me I'm afraid, but if you could point me in the general direction it would be appreciated.
