I want my Raspberry PI to be able to use this cheap webcam I bought from China.
After quite a bit of searching I found a post from someone who had got it to work by writing a "patch" to GSPCA
So I downloaded the patch and I downloaded GSPCA but before I implemented the changes I figured I should see if I could build GSPCA.
gspca_build and I got this error.
FATAL you need to install the Kernal Source for your runnning kernel
So I went and followed these steps here to get the kernal source.
But it doesn't really say how to "install" the kernal source and I errored out on
git checkout rpi-3.6.y but I went into the sub directory and ran it again and it seemed to work.
I ran the build file again but I'm getting the same error.
I then found this question about the kernel source but I don't understand any of it and it gets thread jacked into a rant about GPL.
I ran the
git clone git://github.com/raspberrypi/linux.git command suggested by
abolotnov, after following some instructions on how to enable a swap file as I kept on erroring out, and then I reran the make file.
I'm now receiving an error that the
/lib/module/3.6.11+/build/ folder does not exist.
I manually created the build folder and now I'm receiving another error. I'm not sure what should go into the build folder.
