Webcam on ASUS F5R. Build-in Syntek Web Cam - Asus A8J, F3S, F5R, VX2S, V1S

Asked by Rob Frerejean on 2009-07-25

I found a user manual to install my webcam, but I am having some problems.

Here is the user manual.

I get to this point...make -f Makefile.standalone, but there it does not seem to do what it Should.

make -f Makefile-syntekdriver install give´s me so many error messages. I don´t know what to do now.

I can put the output here, but I have to switch to english first. I use a Dutch version.

Here is the output of the command....

I use sudo, because if I don´t nothing happens at all.

Didn´t work. Sorry.

Seems to affect more than just webcams

Guess I have bad luck here. I think I need to buy a external webcam. One which is known to work with Linux witout adding extra drivers and so on. That´s what I love about Linux. I don´t have to install drivers at all.
