camsource breaks my heart


Good Evening
Camsource WAS working my system and was serving up stream but it stopped. I don't know whether it was me playing with Camserv or an act of God but, though /dev/video1 works with xawtv, it won't work with my www page. The page comes up error free - but no image. In Opera, the image link is visible. But no stream> Aaaargh! I'd worked so hard to get the bloody thing working in the first place and BANG - it's gone. What can I check? I did make uninstall and then I reinstalled but nothing. Camsource still gives this -

Camsource 0.7.0 starting up...
Loading modules:
input_v4l (alias input_v4l) version 0.7.0 OK
jpeg_comp (alias jpeg_comp) version 0.7.0 OK
socket (alias socket) version 0.7.0 OK
wc_serv (alias wc_serv) version 0.7.0 OK
wc_serv (alias noresizewc) version 0.7.0 OK
http (alias http) version 0.7.0 OK
flip (alias flip) version 0.7.0 OK
resize (alias resize) version 0.7.0 OK
text (alias text) version 0.7.0 OK
Main init done and logfile opened.
Closing stdout and going into background...

Which it did before. camsource -k gives this -

0 matching process(es)/thread(s) killed

Before, about 6 processed were killed. I really don't understand.
*sob!*

Camserv has saved the day!! A bit of fiddling and I have a browser image. Goodbye camsource - for the moment!! What I don't understand is how to make camserv run in the background - as camsource did. When I log out as user, I want camserv to continue serving but at the moment it stops when I log out. camserv -d or whatever just tries to read the -* file.

Does camserv have to be on same box as the webserver? My image works locally - with camserv running on 192.168.1.102 but the webserver and domain on .101. From outside - it doesn't work.

I'm still at it ... Camsource is working again. The first time I set it up, the command #camsource was enough but this time I needed #/usr/local/bin/camsource and it worked fine.
Does anyone know how to get camsource to allow Internet Explorer users to see the served image?

PS The way this thread is going....I'll be back!!!
