Do you have same version of kernel and firmware on both Raspberry Pi?

Code: Select all

$ uname -a

Code: Select all

$ vcgencmd version
It might be the same issue as my problem http://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewt ... 28&t=97983

Well, you have still kernel 3.12, so it seems to be a different issue. Is your webcam working with other software, such as guvcview or mjpg_streamer? Which kernel messages can you see after attaching your webcam and then after running motion?

Code: Select all

$ dmesg
