Segmentationfault on netcam


For some reason, I suddenly get a Segmentation fault when I start motion. it seems that it is when it starts the netcam module. If I remove all the netcam threads and just leave the usb cam thread it runs smoothly. What packages does the netcam module depend upon? Maybe some of them needs to be rebuilt. I have recently compiled new versions of many packages, so there may be something there..

Actually I just found out that the usb cam thread also dies if I try to access the live stream on the webcam server.

Installed 3.2.6 instead and it works

Somehow 3.2.7 does not fit my system. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help

It concerns me if 3.2.6 works and 3.2.7 does not.

Can you try and run it again and tell us what you get in your syslog?

Also can you post your config files? You can simply attach them. Remember to delete passwords.

Sorry about all this. Now it works fine offcourse.. Maybe I have upgraded some important dependency since last time. Im not sure.
