The Free Electrons LXR (Linux Cross Reference) for referring the kernel source. However, I prefer ctags and cscope for lengthy source-code browsing sessions.

      1. Thanks for the quick reply. Unfortunately my webcam does not work this that driver. I have a Creative Live Cam HD which has an on-board H.264 encoder. However, v4l2-ctl only shows getting an incoming feed of MJPEG so I’m trying to find a driver to support my webcam or I have to write my own.

  2. very good collection in one point ( like tar ) … this is very useful for all connecting with linux ….
