    Question installing QuickCam Easy


    Hi,
    I have a Logitech QuickCam Easy webcam. It is supported by spca5xx driver. I downloaded spca5xx-20060501.tar.gz from http://mxhaard.free.fr/download.html. There is a separate link for mandriva. But thet link is not working.
    Do anybody have experience in installing spca driver? How can I install it? what are the dependency packages needed for for this driver?

    Thanks
    Jain

    Have you tested that you don't have the kernel module already on your computer?

    try this
    modprobe -l | grep -i spca

    If it doesn't show anything, you may need to build it from source or get a Mandriva package. You will need the kernel headers or sources

    tar zxf spca5xx-20060501.tar.gz
    ./configure
    make
    su
    make install

    I run modprobe -l | grep -i spca and got this o/p

    /lib/modules/2.6.17-5mdv/kernel/drivers/usb/media/gspca.ko

    so, is that mean installation is successful?
