BUG: "compatible palette" error until fswebcam runs before Motion
Using certain webcams (Logitech C310, Logitech C110), I get this error if I run Motion after a reboot.
However, the weird thing is this error doesn't come up if I run fswebcam BEFORE I run Motion. It's as if "fswebcam" will prime Motion to work correctly like it should.
People on other forums seem to know this is a problem. Some people write scripts to run "fswebcam" before running "Motion".
It would be nice to fix this, so I don't have to buy new webcams
