to patsfan: `uname -r` often embedded in another command surrounded by back ticks (as here), returns your kernel version number - so you can reference the right stuff for your kernel.
to k3v1nf: try "ls /lib/modules/`uname -r`/extra/" - this will probably show you ov51x-jpeg.ko
"sudo insmod" that/those, rather than the ones in the instructions.
kopete & xawtv still hang for me, and camorama still shows me 3 elongated images, side by side. If I take a snapshot I get 6, slightly ghosted - cropped & quality reduced copy attached, but it was originally 640*480, with the bottom 160 or so rows black
I tried this version: http://ovcam.org/ov511/download/ov51...2-mark.tar.bz2
as ghandi2 - I get similar errors - googling suggested replacing MODULE_PARM(whatever, "i") with module_param(whatever, int, 0) for my kernel (2.6.17), which compiles clean, apart from ov51x.c:282:MODULE_PARM(unit_video, "1-" __MODULE_STRING(OV511_MAX_UNIT_VIDEO) "i");
which is a little different, and I don't know how to replace.
