Hey all.  I just wanted to report back that I have successfully made motion to work using the Raspberri Pi camera board and the instructions in the thread Joe Carter provided did work.  This Raspberry Pi was pretty much right out of the box, no other software was installed.  I had to install two packages to satisfy dependancies (see below) but that was it.  Now to figure out how to mount this thing to the back of the door and have the camera in a peephole.  

Original link: http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=43&t=44966

Other software I had to install before motion would run.

   89  sudo apt-get install libmysqlclient18
   95  sudo apt-get install libpq5

See this thread on the rPi forums: http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=43&t=44966
It seems to be working via modified version of motion that uses the native cam APIs.

Well that's the first problem - I haven't found any success stories.  I found many that show how to take a five second video, etc, and I've done all that - the camera is functional but I haven't found any articles about successfully getting the camera board to work with motion so if you have a link handy please feel free to send it along.  I'll head back to google to see where my search parameters are failing.  Thank you!

I have seen many success stories on the internet. Could you describe what issues do you have?
