Bear with me for a minute, this leads up to specific questions... :)
I'm running FC5 with kernel 2.6.18-1.2239.fc5 i686 and would like to get
a Creative Webcam Instant working. After much clicking around on the
web I've learned that some people have gotten this webcam to work with
kernel module spca5xx and that spca5xx has been replaced with gspca.
Drilling down the ATrpms website to http://atrpms.net/dist/fc5/gspca/
I've come across a page of "gspcav1" rpms for kernel 2.6.18-1.2239 which
seem more or less the same. Does anyone have any insight into which of
these packages might work on my systen? Why are there so many gspcav1
for the same kernel?
I just used the basic tarball, compiled it, after making the config.h
fix to the kernel, and fired up kopete and saw myself. A miracle. If
you need more help, just email me offlist. Ric
