View Full Version : Compiling drivers for Microdia web cam

December 25th, 2008, 05:16 AM
I am trying to install my microdia USB camera. It is reconize by lsusb. But I have no drivers for it.

I have downloaded the drivers and am trying to compile them. It been 15 years since I did any C programs so I'm lost when an error pops up. Heres the screen when I type make.
dave@gadabout:/usr/src/microdia-2008.09$ sudo make

make -C /lib/modules/2.6.24-21-generic/build SUBDIRS= modules

make[1]: *** [prepare0] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.24-21-generic'

What am I missing and where do I find it.
Any information you have would be appreciated.

You should move this to a support forum... the cafe is really just for small talk.

That said, is there a readme with the source? It should have all the dependencies listed, make sure they are all installed.
