Video for linux input driver


When I try to run spcagui I get this:
ERROR opening V4L interface
: No such file or directory

If this means I need to install the Video 4 Linux input driver, where do I get it???

V4L is part of the kernel.

You compile the driver, it's part of the kernel.

Um, it's in the section labled "VIDEO 4 LINUX"

Didn't you have to compile things to make fedorah core work? maybe it would be best to switch to a distro where all the options are compiled for you?
