It looks like the driver module that I need is spca501.  There is a
source package for Etch:


Do this:

sudo m-a

It will put up a dialogue box, and then you need to first prepare the build
by downloading the kernel headers.  Then choose select and check the
spca5xx-source, and it should download it for you.  Then build it and
install it.  These are all menu selectable items in module assitant.

Unless I am mistaking, I read somewhere that spca5xx was for kernel up to 2.6.11, for later kernel you need gspca-sources.

You are correct.
So, do I follow the instructions that John gave above and substitute gspca-source for spca5xx-source?
