Motion - Support Question 2007x 01x 09x 180516

Make of 3.2.8 fails, undefined references to vid_*


Here I am again...

As per my request for "how to install the v4l2 patch", I followed your instructions (am I right in thinking motion has been updated in the last few days?).

Anyway, configure completes OK, but make falls over at the linking stage. I'm adding a copy of the output.

Help - what do I do next ??

Thanks! Lee

Follow up

Seems that you didn't run autoconf before to run configure , anyway it's my fault to don't include in the patch the configure updated.

so please try :


I've commit the latest v4l2 patch to svn version , but i noticed that it won't work in all systems for several reasons :

1-. Not all systems has linux/videodev2.h 2-. Some systems with kernels older than 2.6.x ( not sure what is the x value ) doesn't include <linux/videodev2.h> in <linux/videodev.h> 3-. Others that i'm missing at the moment.

So i'm trying to handle all these problems.

Please let me know if you have any problem after to update your configure ( running autoconf ).
