I'm compiling on a different machine to the machine that built the kernel.

What I had to do after:

apt-get install mercurial

cd /usr/src

hg clone http://linuxtv.org/hg/~jfrancois/gspca/


apt-get linux-source-2.6.27

cd /usr/src
bzip2 -dc linux-source-2.6.27-rc4.tar.bz2|tar -xf /dev/fd/0
ln -s linux-source-2.6.27-rc4 linux
cd linux
cp /boot/config-2.6.27-rc4 .config
make prepare
make scripts

cd /lib/modules/2.6.27-rc4
ln -s /usr/src/linux build

cd /usr/src/gspca
checkinstall make install

This failed as the installation attempted to overwrite existing modules.


make install

worked, but this doesn't help me to install the modules on a machine 
that they weren't built on.

Any suggestions?
