Fedora 5 SPCA5xx webcam driver doeasn't compile anymore;

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Hello guys,

I have been using Fedora for ages and also used the spca5xx driver for
webcam support.
In fedora 4 all I had to do was to install kernel-devel package and then
navigate to the directory where the driver was saved and issue the make
command as normal user and then make install as Root and it all always
worked smoothly.

I proceeded approximately the same way with fedora 5 but no matter what
I do I keep getting the same message at the Make level:

[mirco@localhost spca5xx-20060301]$ make clean
rm -r -f drivers/usb/*.o drivers/usb/.spcadecoder.o.cmd \
drivers/usb/.spca5xx.o.cmd  *.o *.ko *.mod.* .[a-z]* core *.i

Thank you very much and congratulations on the EXTREMELY GOOD WORK.
