> What is the easiest way to download and recompile it?
The easiest way to recompile it would be to use the v4l-dvb mercurial
repository from http://linuxtv.org This is setup to allow compiling
v4l against your currently running kernel without having to compile
and install a new one. However they patches in question do not really
effect your issue. The poor image quality is likely due to a poor init
sequence for that sensor which has always been somewhat bad i believe.
I can try to create some patches to help fix that issue if you want to
test them out to see if they improve things or make them worse.
This image isn't bad. Your software just applied the wrong filters :-P
No need to recompile anything, just user other capture software, or use
the right preferences/settings.

Well, I have a:
Bus 002 Device 003: ID 045e:00f4 Microsoft Corp. LifeCam VX-6000
(SN9C20x + OV9650)
kopete or skype give me a correct preview, I'm just about to compile
cheese but have to get valac in the first place.
Be back in a sec ;-P
Sorry, for my preemtivness, but on trying to compile cheese I
discovered, not only valac, but a whole lot of midget^w gnome
is required to run chess.
what does skype show ?
What kernel are you running ?
What does dmesg tell you, when you (re)connect the camera ?
I'm trying to help, but I won't refurbish the whole place
for 1 (one) application....
