using this link : I learnt that I
need to install linux-uvc driver. I downloaded the driver by :

svn checkout svn://

However, make gives the error :

[root at rohan trunk]# make
Building USB Video Class driver...
make: *** /lib/modules/ No such file or
directory.  Stop.
make: *** [uvcvideo] Error 2

I checked the directory /lib/modules/ There is a
file build which is a symbolic link to

build -> ../../../usr/src/kernels/

How do I install this driver?
