Line 41 is:
MODULE_INSTALLDIR2 = /lib/modules/$(KERNEL_VERSION)/kernel/drivers/media/video/

However, Line 40 is:
MODULE_INSTALLDIR = /lib/modules/$(KERNEL_VERSION)/kernel/drivers/usb/media/

So, should I be modifying line 40 instead?

Yes.

And to read the READ_AND_INSTALL file is a good idea, too.

I'm afraid not. I learned something about them years ago when I needed to
work on a driver for hardware not supported in the kernel, but I've managed
to forget everything I ever knew :-)

Apparently it was:

Jan 4 19:58:51 feisty-laptop kernel: [66839.440000] usb 2-1: new full
speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 5
Jan 4 19:58:51 feisty-laptop kernel: [66839.672000] usb 2-1:
configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice

Er, I'm stuck. I don't even know what to google, as I've gotten no
error messages.

OK something went wrong. I don't see any messages from gspca.
You can check with the command 'lsmod' if the gspca module got loaded.
Do something like that:
thomas@AMD64:~/Projects/webcam/PixArt/PAC7311$ lsmod |grep gspca

And output on my box:
gspca 691280 0
compat_ioctl32 11136 1 gspca
videodev 31360 2 gspca,saa7146_vv
usbcore 161584 4 gspca,ehci_hcd,ohci_hcd

When you don't see any occurrence of gspca try to load the module manually:
sudo modprobe gspca

'modinfo gspca' gives you some more information about the module Ubuntu uses.
Maybe Ubunutu is still using the old gspca module (not your own build).

Anyway, you could unload the module with 'sudo modprobe -r gspca' and force to
load yours module when you issue following command in the directory where you
started the 'make' command:
sudo insmod gspca.ko

Let's see what happens.

Thomas

Seems like it's using the new module:

Don't know whats going on here? Do you plug the cam direct do your box or do you
use a USB hub?

Let's try something else.
gspca module is loaded but that does not mean that your cam is using it. So,
unplug the cam and plug it again. After that check the kern.log and look for
messages from gspca.

Check the time stamp of the gspca.ko module:
ls -l /lib/modules/2.6.22-14-generic/ubuntu/gspcav1/media/

The time stamp should be something from today. If not you are still using the
original Ubuntu gspca module. Then something went wrong with 'make install'.

You could do the steps for compiling and installing the module again and post
all messages you got in the console.

Anyway, it's always a good idea to post the output of a command you run. May be
it looks good for you but some more experienced people see something suspecting.

No more ideas at the moment. I wait for some more information from you.

Thomas

PS: I think you got a lot of information to do your own experiments. Never less,
don't hesitate to ask questions.

Directly into the computer.

I see the disconnect and reconnect, but no word from gspca:

Jan 4 23:02:42 feisty-laptop kernel: [77870.692000] usb 2-1: USB
disconnect, address 5
Jan 4 23:02:50 feisty-laptop kernel: [77878.356000] usb 2-1: new full

Hmm, this is interesting:

$ ls -l /lib/modules/2.6.22-14-generic/ubuntu/gspcav1/media/
ls: /lib/modules/2.6.22-14-generic/ubuntu/gspcav1/media/: No such file
or directory
$

Wait, I found it here:

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 991029 2008-01-04 19:57 gspca.ko

No, it's today.

I guess I'll pull a Microsoft: I'll reboot and see if that fixed things.

I do have lots of new information. If I didn't want to learn, trust
me, I wouldn't even bother anybody else on the list. Thank you very
much, for helping and teaching me. I really do appreciate it.

You run a different kernel then I do. The module should be here:
ls -l /lib/modules/2.6.20-15-generic/ubuntu/gspcav1/media/

Which version of Ubuntu do you use?

I had to go through this a long time ago. Learning of your own is hard but
really good :-)

I really don't see what is going wrong. If you do a modprobe -r gspca and then a
modprobe gspca you should see this in the kern.log:

Jan 4 23:26:37 localhost kernel: [198696.032759] usbcore: deregistering
interface driver gspca
Jan 4 23:26:37 localhost kernel: [198696.033285]
/home/thomas/Projects/webcam/gspcav1-20071224/gspca_core.c: driver gspca
deregistered
Jan 4 23:26:41 localhost kernel: [198697.930499] usbcore: registered new
