I found this on the rasatgeeks website 

When I modprobe ov519_decomp it complains about unknown symbols. What's

If you're getting similar messages in dmesg:

ov519_decomp: disagrees about version of symbol

ov519_decomp: Unknown symbol ov511_deregister_decomp_module

ov519_decomp: disagrees about version of symbol

ov519_decomp: Unknown symbol ov511_register_decomp_module

It's likely that the ov511 driver included in the 2.6 kernel is getting
in the way. Move it someplace and try again:

# mv /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/drivers/usb/media/ov511.ko \

/lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/drivers/usb/media/ov511.ko.orig

# depmod -a

# modprobe ov519_decomp

but still no luck

This is the output I get from the above:
