Segmentation fault upon movement



I'm having a problem with Motion 3.2.3 that when it detects motion, it reports 'Segmentation Fault' and crashes:

[root@Kylie etc]# /usr/local/bin/motion [0] Processing thread 0 - config file motion.conf [1] Thread is from motion.conf [1] Thread started [1] motion-httpd/3.2.3 running, accepting connections [1] motion-httpd: waiting for data on port TCP 8081 [1] Started stream webcam server in port 8080 Segmentation fault

Woudl you have any suggestions where to look to get more information, or to begin fixing things?

The webcam works fine - it only crashes when movement is detected.

Many thanks, Chris.


Motion version: 3.2.3

Did you install Motion from rpm?

If you did make sure that you use the ffmpeg version that Motion rpm was built with.

You use a very old rpm of ffmpeg made for FC2. That will never work with Motion 3.2.3 rpms.




Removing ffmpeg, downloading the latest CVS, recompiling it, and then recompiling motion fixed the problem.

Thanks for the pointer.
