OpenMoko Webcam

          I am trying to enable support on my OpenMoko for Webcams.  I have
followed the instructions to install debian by using the installation script
described at :  I then followed
the instructions for openmoko and webcam at :  I downloaded the kernel and upzipped
it as described.  The instructions said to get a config from /proc/.config
but that didn't exist after the install script.  I then found a config file
in the debian package which the automatic installer uses called
'linux-image-2.6.24-openmoko-gta02'.  So I downlaoded the source for this
and found a config file at defconfig-gta02 - I used this.  Carrying on I ran
the command : make drivers/media/video/v4l1-compat.ko.  However here is
where the problem  starts.  The code goes through and shows the following

debian-gta02:/usr/src/linux-2.6-openmoko-20081103.git7172ec57# make
scripts/kconfig/conf -s arch/arm/Kconfig

  No 'explicit' error gets reported but the dirver file does not get made.
Searching for this (on debian in gerenal as there is not much on the
freerunner itself', I find comments that the config file may be incorrect -
however I cannot find another source for the config file.  For now I am
trying to do a complete compile of the kernal on the FreeRunner but as you
can imagine - that is a bit slow!!  Does anyone have any advice or tips they
can give me on compiling the driver and/or working out a config file?

  Thank you, in advance for your help.
