It says it in what you posted. SN9C102 is the module. If you do an "lsmod | grep sn9c", you should see it loaded. Seems like it found and loaded everything properly. What's not working? And I don't know what you mean by:

The module is installed and loaded. You can do a "find /build -name sn9c*", and locate it. Not sure why you need to find the file and "reach there"...

Your question makes no sense. Please clarify, and write clearly.

Still have very little clue as to what you're talking about; your sentences make very little sense.

If you mean you want to write drivers for webcams, download the source for one of the existing modules, and take a look at it. The webcam driver isn't built-into the kernel, unless you specifically do it, it's a kernel-module, that gets loaded on an as-needed basis.
