Question [Appended]Excuse me, questions in motion detection sw.


Hello,
I need your knowledge please.

When I downloaded the motion detection sw "Motion" I found in the following path:
/etc/motion/
motion.conf and 4 thread files in case of using several cameras.

Q1:Can anyone please tell me in which language is that configuration file written?

Q2: I need to collect the source of Motion. Is that configuration file + the 4 thread files which in the /etc/motion directory only the source of the program neither there is some files in another paths I don't know?

How did you install motion? And what distribution are you using?

And please don't bump your thread so quick, especially replying with "please, need help!!!!!!" Saying that is going to make us NOT help you. Give your future threads at least 2 or 3 days in advance before bumping your threads. Thanks for understanding, and hope to hear a reply back from you.....

Josh

You are talking about the /etc/motion/motion.conf file, correct? The language is English But seriously, it is only a configuration file, with specific commands and values for only motion to interpret.

Everything is stored in /var/motion. Good luck with everything else, and let me know if you have any more issues.

Cheers,

Josh

Thanks for reply.
Motion doesn't exist in the path:
/var/motion
!
It run from the path
/etc/motion

Is the configuration file
/etc/motion/motion.conf
Is only the source which the system use to interpret Motion?

As far as understanding it, what parts don't you understand?

Just post your /etc/motion/motion.conf and I will help you out.

Cheers,

Josh

Sir,
My inquire is that, "Is that configuration file which in /etc/motion/motion.conf" only, the source of "Motion"?

What do you mean the source of motion? The motion.conf is the source of the configuration for motion.

As a source of any other program....Ummm..Sorry, I'll try to clear:
I mean If I took that motion.cong and put it on another linux machine, it'd be enough to get motion detection software.

Oh yes, that is correct. Just to remind you though - If you have a different storage location set, you will need to create that applicable directory on the new machine.
