Check the web page for that software. Most will tell what version is
in the version of the kernel you have (for example, the ov511 web page
will tell you that kernel 2.4.x uses version 1.50.01) , and see if
they have a new patch to apply against the kernel. Most (not all)

could check the change log to see if the log contains info on the last
update of the driver. Perhaps the header files in the source, or the
documents in the Documents directory of your kernel could also supply
