View Full Version : [SOLVED] Cannot compile drivers for my webcam

August 15th, 2010, 10:06 AM
I'm trying to compile the stk11xx module, although without any success.

adolf@laptop:~/Webcam$ cd stk11xx-2.1.0/
adolf@laptop:~/Webcam/stk11xx-2.1.0$ sudo make -f Makefile.standalone
make -C /lib/modules/2.6.32-24-generic/build SUBDIRS= modules
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.32-24-generic'
CHK include/linux/version.h
CHK include/linux/utsrelease.h
SYMLINK include/asm -> include/asm-x86
make[2]: *** No rule to make target `kernel/bounds.c', needed by `kernel/bounds.s'. Stop.
make[1]: *** [prepare0] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.32-24-generic'
make: *** [driver] Error 2What am I doing wrong? I've tried reinstalling the linux-headers without any luck.

I solved the problem by changing the following line in Makefile.standalone:

$(MAKE) -C $(KSRC) SUBDIRS=$(PWD) modules

$(MAKE) -C $(KSRC) SUBDIRS=$(shell pwd) modules

I also installed the package exuberant-ctags before I managed to compile the driver.

When it was comiled and ready I run

sudo modprobe videodev
sudo insmod ./stk11xx.ko

Now everything works as supposed to. Hooray!
