Motion - Support Question 2011x 08x 31x 072058

Motion + pwcbsd + FreeBSD 8.1p2 amd64 + USB Quickcam 4000 Express

Question

Hi,

From ports, I compiled motion with pwcbsd support, apparently configured it fine and when it is launched, it cant open video0 device (unable to open reported in picture). pwcview opens it & display image properly. I see this mmap vs read issue but since motion keeps running, I cant tell if it is related. Can you help ? motion.conf is the one provided by default but the listed lines. thx
