Motion - Support Question 2015x 01x 23x 222142

Install Motion on Centos6


I try to use the following procedure in order to installa Motion on Centos:

"RPM for Fedora on x86/x86-64 - Available on RPM Fusion, build without DB support. Motion and all its dependencies (ffmpeg...) are available on the RPM Fusion repository. Configure the repository and Install motion with yum install motion."

But I receive: Motion isn't available.

How can I install Motion with ffmpeg e db support?

"yum install motion
Plugin abilitati:fastestmirror, security
Impostazione processo di installazione

The easies way - is to compile ffmpeg from sources and then compile motion to use your ffmpeg.

Like this:
cd /home/user
git clone ffmpeg
cd ffmpeg
./configure --prefix=/home/user/ffmpeg/out

Then go to your motion source dir and configure this way:
./configure --with-ffmpeg=/home/user/ffmpeg/out

If you get linking error, try editing motion's Makefile and put there extra library flags, like:
-lswresample -lrt -llzma -lbz2 etc...
