Motion - Feature Request 2007x 02x 06x 231543

Feature Request: noninteractive start motion as service.

Hi! I am sorry for my english. I have changed function start() in /etc/rc.d/init.d/motion for run motion with non-priviledged UID and special umask. Interactive start|restart motion work nice, but non-interactive(i.e. after reboot) does not start motion. Is tty required for start motion as service? Below is apropriate part of /etc/rc.d/init.d/motion:

start() {
        echo -n $"Starting $prog: "
        /usr/bin/sudo -u motion /bin/bash -c "umask 0007 ; exec $motion"
        [ $RETVAL = 0 ] && touch /var/lock/subsys/motion
        return $RETVAL

Motion build as rpm package from src.rpm.


Motion version: 3.2.7
ffmpeg version: 0.4.9-0.25.20061030.lvn6
Shared libraries: ffmpeg, mysql, postgresql
Server OS: Fedora Core 6

Follow up

Hi Euvgeny,

Well first at all that is not a bug , because you changed motion init.d script wink

So that is a feature request or support question , anyway ... please try to send more information about the problem you have when system boots

maybe the problem is that your device kernel module is not ready or the permission for is not set yet.
