    That was just the command to copy your old uvc driver to /lib/modules.

    Can you please omit this cp command :-

    sudo cp -av /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/kernel/drivers/media/video/uvc/uvcvideo.ko /lib/modules &&

    Update. I have just added the make install command. I did not include that command as it installs header files as well.

    Please have a look at your make.log. It will let you know a bit more on whats happening.

    Kernel device drivers will build and install on any PC, even if the actual device does not exist on that same PC.

    UPDATE:

    I've corrected the installation commands. And made a note that the installation only installs the Linux UVC driver.


    Please test.

    Re: Webcam driver update for Ubuntu-8.10

    You are a GENIUS linux23dragon!

    What command should I use for my Sony Vaio VGC-LS1 machine's web cam.

    http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2006322,00.asp

    Will the driver only work for 8.10 OR for all Linux distros?

    Regards,

    Yezinki.
