    Did you really load the ov511 driver r before this? It hasn't claimed the camera. Modprobe for ov511 again, removing it first if necessary, and then run "dmesg | tail" to see if it has said anything useful.

    That's not very good. It seems that the driver didn't recognize the camera. I don't think that there is another driver (at least not that I have found). Your camera seems to be using the OV518+ chipset, and at least I don't know of any other drivers for the OV51* chipsets.
    2.16 isn't the latest drivers version, though. You can try download the latest driver from http://alpha.dyndns.org/ov511/ and try if that works better.

    I downloaded the newest drivers, and whenever I try to install them, I get this:
    Code:
    [greg@dhcp-2044-12 ov511-2.25]$ make
    rm -f *.o *.ko *.mod.* .[a-z]* core *.i
    [greg@dhcp-2044-12 ov511-2.25]$ su
    Password:
    [root@dhcp-2044-12 ov511-2.25]# make install
    make: *** No rule to make target `install'.  Stop.

    Is there something wrong with your make? The default rule seems to be "clean" and it can't find the "install" rule. I just downloaded it myself and it compiled perfectly. What version of make are you using?

    Do you have your kernel source code installed?
