I've instead used the 'howto' on:

That worked first time on a test Mandriva 2009.0-RC2 system. You need to
make sure you have such as:

kernel-(server|desktop|laptop|xxxx)-devel; git; gcc; make; and ctags
installed so that you can compile the code.

All good except...

How can I change the resolution to get the full 4M-pixels out of the
Sumvision Panther?

And what is there for setting the camera exposure and other image settings??
