Problem to connect Axis 210A to motion
I can't install V4L2
, give me error (1)
i already install pwc (pwc-10.0.5-1.src.rpm).
But in the motion guide says it's not need install V4L2
, because it's a network camera, and when i run motion give me error (2)

Quite strange your question :
Why you need to install V4L2
? it's comes with kernel ... or are you getting GIT version of V4L2
Moreover motion include already pwc-ioctl.h ... so no need to provide.
You can build motion without v4l/ v4l2 support : ./configure --without-v4l ; make ; make install
If you are running a netcam you MUST provide netcam_url value in motion.conf ... and last but not least
why are you uing a 3.2.9 ??? that's fucking old ! 3.2.11 is current stable and soon 3.3.0 will be out.
