Your problem is possibly that /lib/modules/<kernel version>/build is not
symlinked to /usr/src/linux-<kernel version>/
At least it was when I tried to compile the same drivers package on Mandrake
Also, watch out. Several of the "supported" Logitech Quickcams seem to have
changed chipset while maintaining the same USB vendorid:productid values. I
came across this recently with the "Logitech Quickcam Messenger".
Incidentally, if anyone is looking for two of these - they work fine in
Windows as long as it's not in a VMware virtual machine - email me. I paid
EUR70 for the pair last week, eejit that I am, I'll flog 'em for EUR50.
A man who carries a cat by its tail learns something he can learn
in no other way.
