    oops, sorry, it is supposed to be ubuntu-dev-tools not ubuntu-dev.

    install that and do the compiling, the ctag error might go away now this time.

    redid the whole thing..
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install ubuntu-dev-tools
    then

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install exuberant-ctags
    tapos..

    git clone http://repo.or.cz/r/microdia.git

    cd microdia

    make

    sudo insmod ./microdia.ko

    here's the error now.

    arvin@arvin-laptop:~/microdia$ sudo insmod ./microdia.ko

    Re: Anybody have a driver for this Microdia PC Camera (SN9C201) web camera?

    from the blog article, there was a specific comment for 8.04 x86_64

    On my x86_64 Ubuntu 8.04 system I had to do the following:

    $ sudo modprobe videodev
    $ sudo modprobe compat_ioctl32
    $ sudo insmod ./microdia.ko

    The compat_ioctl32 module is not needed on a 32-bit system.

    An alternative is to install the microdia module into the kernel module path “manually” (because there is no “make install” yet) as follows:

    $ sudo install -d /lib/modules/`uname -r`/misc
    $ sudo install microdia.ko /lib/modules/`uname -r`/misc
    $ sudo depmod -a

    Then to load the module all you need to do is:

    $ sudo modprobe microdia

    In fact the module should then be autoloaded when the webcam is plugged in, or if the webcam is built-in, following a reboot.
    try those steps.

    yeah, from that screenshot, you should navigate first to that directory

    Code:
    cd /home/arvin/microdia
    then do the previous commands, load / install modules etc..
