[Spca50x-devs] Need Help: problem with gspca installation

I am trying to install gspca driver for fedora 7.

[root@localhost ~]# uname -r

I have done the following steps.

[root@localhost gspcav1-20070508]# make
make -C /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build SUBDIRS=/root/Download/gspcav1-20070508 CC=cc modules
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/kernels/'
  Building modules, stage 2.
  MODPOST 1 modules
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/kernels/'

[root@localhost gspcav1-20070508]# ls

[root@localhost gspcav1-20070508]# modprobe videodev

[root@localhost gspcav1-20070508]# modprobe gspca
