Try to see if you can view the camera output by other means. Cheese or mplayer can do it. Could try google video hangout too.

Iím running motion successfully on a Raspberry pi however I am now attempting to install it on an old Asus eeepc I have lying around.

The Asus shows there to be a video device at /dev/video0 but the motion program does not recognize it.

Has anyone installed motion on an eeepc and if so would you be willing to share your config files?
