I have a Sabrelight BD-SL-i.MX6 running Debian 7 (3.0.35) and am trying to install a USB Web Cam (Creative Live Camera 041e:4036) which should be compatible with the GSPCA ZC3XX module ( I understand that the module is not installed on the kernel and this is why i can't use the camera. I would like to compile this kernel module (gspca_zc3xx) but I don't know how to go about this. Any hint is appreciated.


$ lsmod
