Well, I had no issues compiling the driver on a virtual machine.



Using Bodhi 4.4.0 Legacy with a 32 bit kernel: 3.16.0-4-586 (non-PAE, thus limited to < 4 GB RAM)

Downloaded the zip file from HERE

Before compiling you need to install build-essential

The linux-headers are present by default.

make and make install produced no errors whatever.

My webcam is a different type so I can't test it for real, or judge the video quality.





Read THIS, it was about the most recent thing I found offering a solution.
