Fedora 14 - Sony Vaio SZ webcam

Hi there

I have a (6-7 year old) Sony Vaio SZ which I run Fedora 14 on. Fedora 14 cannot autodetect the webcam on the laptop. I've looked through threads on the web and found that lsusb identifies the webcam as:

Bus 001 Device 004: ID 05ca:1835 Ricoh Co., Ltd Visual Communication Camera VGP-VCC5 [R5U870]

I followed the thread and downloaded kernel module source for the camera from http://www.palmix.org/r5u870-en.html and attempted to build it.

But when I try to build it I get the following error message:

make -C /lib/modules/ M=/home/chris/r5u/r5u870-0.10.0-tz17 V=0 modules
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/kernels/'
  CC [M]  /home/chris/r5u/r5u870-0.10.0-tz17/r5u870_md.o
In file included from /home/chris/r5u/r5u870-0.10.0-tz17/r5u870_md.c:55:0:
/home/chris/r5u/r5u870-0.10.0-tz17/usbcam.h:36:29: fatal error: media/video-buf.h: No such file or directory
compilation terminated.
When I look I cannot find video-buf.h anywhere in the linux kernel source tree?
Can anyone help me with what I am missing here please
