Unable to install driver for Creative PD1120 webcam on Redhat9

Hi guys, I have just started using linux. So excuse me if my problem is rather primitive. I am facing a problem installing the driver for my webcam on my redhat9 machine.

Well the webcam is Creative Nx Ultra (pd1120) and on searching I found the appropiate driver here:


After downloading and unzipping the tarball I tried running make but there was 1 error. I checked for dependencies in the INSTALL document and it asked to check whether the v4L and usb stuff was working fine.

on typing

[root@BERNARD root]# modprobe videodev
[root@BERNARD root]# lsmod

autofs 13268 0 (autoclean) (unused)
e100 60644 1
ext3 70784 2
jbd 51892 2 [ext3]

So I guess videodev is fine.

I am using Redhat9 and my kernel is 2.2.20-8

[root@BERNARD root]# uname -a
Linux BERNARD 2.4.20-8 #1 Thu Mar 13 17:54:28 EST 2003 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

I really cant figure out why my driver is not compiling correctly.

Any kind souls that can help me?
