Can;t compile camera driver

Trying to install the latest spca5xx driver from sourceforge for my Logitech Clicksmart 510 camera.

Get the following message:

spca5]# 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/2.6.3-7mdk/build SUBDIRS=/usr/spca5 modules
make[1]: Entering directory `/lib/modules/2.6.3-7mdk/build'
make[1]: *** No rule to make target `modules'. Stop.
make[1]: Leaving directory `/lib/modules/2.6.3-7mdk/build'
make: *** [default] Error 2

This "no rules" error > how do I fix this. According to the readme file this should compile without a problem.

Any ideas?

I tried it and it seemed to start compiling ok here. That 'make modules' rule it needs is probably part of the kernel compiling process.

Try installing the kernel source and then running xconfig if you haven't done so already. You might need to compile the kernel first also.
