Writing code for a Logitech Quickcam pro 3000
I am new to Linux. I am however, quite familiar with C. The other day, a good friend and me were looking through his basement when we found an old computer that was running Linux (reason why i installed it on my computer now.) We then decided to make a little surveillance program (taking a picture at an interval for however long) using his webcam. The webcam is a Logitech Quickcam Pro 3000 and from the system monitor it is running Linux kernel 2.4.19 (old.) From what I did read it seems as though I need to find a correct distribution package for this kernel version. I have found two libraries; PWC and V4L. Can someone step me through the steps of how I would go about finding the correct release for this web cam? I am going to be using Kdevelop to write the code on my computer here and use a cross compiler to get the code to work on his computer. I appreciate all help!
