Hi all,

I need help with compiling a driver. I try to compile a driver for my webcam. The driver is qc-usb-0.6.5.
I've loaded:
1.  "gnu-utils.unc"
2.  "gcc1-with-libs.unc"
3.  "kernelsource.dsl"

All was loaded with MyDSL extension tool.

I cd to the qc-usb-0.6.5 directory and sudo make all and get:
make: cc: Command not found
make: *** qc-driver.0  Error 127

Please if there is someone who can help and explain whats wrong. It seems like gcc still isn't loaded? What do I do wrong or are there more .dsl extensions that must be loaded?

cc is/should be a link to gcc

Say that gcc is in /usr/bin. Use "which gcc" to find out location.

sudo ln -s /usr/bin/gcc /usr/bin/cc

This should provide you your "cc" command.

Thanks Roberts

That made the trick! Now I sucessfully compiled my driver! But it still doesen't work! I think I need to load v4l drivers. Is video4linux included or do I need to load them through Mydsl? I made my share if googeling but no sucess?

I got the driver to work!

For others interested I'v just used the included script and then it worked. Now only for next challenge to have it permanently loaded!
