[root@localhost trunk]# make

/bin/sh: line 0: cd: /lib/modules/ No such file or directory
make: *** [uvcvideo] Error 1

Did you run ./configure first?

I am having problems getting FC8x64 to recognise my WebCam. I tried to modprobe the UVCVideo webcan driver and get the following error....

[root@localhost davefed]# /sbin/modprobe uvcvideo
FATAL: Module uvcvideo not found.

And here is my lsusb output.....

[root@localhost davefed]# /sbin/lsusb
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0c45:62c0 Microdia
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 08ff:1600 AuthenTec, Inc.
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 04b4:6560 Cypress Semiconductor Corp. CY7C65640 USB-2.0 "TetraHub"
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000

I believe the Webcam is the Microdia device with ID 0x0c45:62c0. Using the v4l2-tool, it advices that the UVCvideo driver but as you can see above, the driver module is not available.

Configure should have been part of the package you downloaded, the .tar.gz file.
