linux/videodev.h : no such file or directory - OpenCV on ubuntu 11.04

I tried to install OpenCV2.2 on Ubuntu 11.04. But OpenCV compilation fails stating an error related to linux/videodev.h file.
File available in /user/includes/linux is named videodev2.h.

/home/user/OpenCV-2.2.0/modules/highgui/src/cap_v4l.cpp:217:28: fatal error: linux/videodev.h: No such file or directory
compilation terminated.
make[2]: *** [modules/highgui/CMakeFiles/opencv_highgui.dir/src/cap_v4l.o] Error 1
make[1]: *** [modules/highgui/CMakeFiles/opencv_highgui.dir/all] Error 2
make: *** [all] Error 2

Is there a solution for this ?

thank you.

sudo apt-get install libv4l-dev
