I need to install a driver for a MT9M032 CMOS Image Sensor USB machine vision camera made by Aptina (formerly Micron).
I am working on a Macintosh running OS X 10.9.1 and am new to Linux/Unix when it comes to this sort of thing. When one comes across a c-file for a camera driver (see driver below), how does one go about installing it? What exactly is the driver doing to my system such that it will now recognize the camera?
Please also see the conversation below regarding a patch of the driver: https://linuxtv.org/patch/10062/
The bottom line is my computer does not recognize the camera, and I know that drivers have been written (i.e. see above driver for MT9M032 CMOS Image Sensor from Micron). If you think there is a better approach I should be taking please let me know.
