I'm a new motion user and I've download the package first from synaptic and
everything was working properly.
But I need to use motion on a DSP (BlackFin 526), so I've to be able to
compile it from the source code.
So I followed the step written on motion guide but at firstly I had some
issues to compile because I didn't have some library about either Jpeg,
Then, I found JPEG library and about the others I don't need for them
(because I'm supposed to use only JPEG file with out TCP connection or SQL
So at the end it was compiled following these step:
$ make install
$ cp motion-dist.conf motion.conf
and when I try to run motion executable program this is what happens and I
cannot understand why:
* Processing thread 0 - config file /usr/local/etc/motion.conf
 Thread is from /usr/local/etc/motion.conf
 Thread started
 sync error in proc 4040: Invalid argument
 mcapture error in proc 4040: Invalid argument
 Video device fatal error - terminating camera thread
 Thread exiting
 Somebody stole the video device, lets hope we got his picture: Invalid
 Motion terminating
Can someone help me please?
