Hi Jack,
Thanks for the response.  Yes, I tried using the latest version of buildroot (1585).  I will try again using a different version of buildroot to see if that works for me.  Does anyone know why the latest version has a problem with this procedure?

Hi Jason,

Are you using the buildroot?  I compiled V4L and pwc about a week or two
ago, but I couldn't get it to work using the latest buildroot. When I
reverted to 1533 everything worked smoothly. As you said previously, I
just did  "make menuconfig ARCH=arm" in the linux-2.6.21gum directory,
enabled V4L and pwc. Then I did "make ARCH=arm
CROSS_COMPILE=/.../staging_dir/bin/arm-linux-" in the linux-2.6.21gum
directory to build the linux kernel and generate the ko files --
although I am unsure whether the cross_compile bit is necessary.
