Default how do I install libv4l ? - 04-07-2012, 11:35 PM

I can't seem to install libv4l using a command like:

sudo apt-get install libv4l-0

On a Mini 9. The reason I'm trying to do this is to resolve a symptom I ran into trying to set up webcam-server. From what I gather, the symptom is resolved if I set up the environment variable:

LD_PRELOAD <path to v4l1compat.so> webcam-server

but I'll need to install that package first.
