Distro: Fedora 8
Camera: 046d:0870 Logitech, Inc. QuickCam Express
Hi, looked through the forum and haven't found an answer. I'm trying to make an old Logitech camera to work in Fedora 8. What packages should I install?
I connected the camera, and dmesg shows only a 'usb connect' and doesn't recognize it. I did a google search, and found out that I should use qc-usb for my camera. But, I'm not sure what's the problem exactly. Running 'make all' the first time spewed a lot of errors, and i realized that it didn't find 'version.h' so I tried this:
$ make all LINUX_DIR='/usr'
make -C "/usr" SUBDIRS="/home/ccc/Download/qc-usb-0.6.5" modules V=1 USER_OPT="-DHAVE_UTSRELEASE_H="
make: Entering directory `/usr'
make: *** No rule to make target `modules'. Stop.
make: Leaving directory `/usr'
make: *** [quickcam.ko] Error 2
I tried /usr because in /usr/include/linux is the version.h file, but obviously that's not enough. It obviously tries to 'make modules'. I thought that the kernel-headers was all that it would take. Do I have to compile the kernel from source if I want it to work?
I don't know what I should try, 'caminfo' didn't detect anything. If I'm to buy a new webcam, which one is best to use in linux, compatibility-wise.
