Motion stalling in Ubuntu 9.04

Question

I am a complete beginner when it comes to all this stuff so pleas bear with me. I currently have Ubuntu 9.04 installed, and I have also installed Motion 3.2.11-1 I have a custom config file and when I try to run motion using "sudo motion -n -c ~/motion/motion.conf" it loads and gets to this point

And then it just hangs and does nothing else. I'm completely stumped and have researched this for quite a while. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Answer

- Insufficient informations about your "hangs". Maybe you should read here :

http://www.lavrsen.dk/foswiki/bin/view/Motion/MotionLog

http://www.lavrsen.dk/foswiki/bin/view/Motion/ErrorLogging

http://www.lavrsen.dk/foswiki/bin/view/Motion/TuningMotion

about logging errors and "how to initially setup Motion". (can you see the video stream with Firefox at "http://localhost:8081/" address ???)

- Don't forget the drivers for your usb camera :
