On a normal startup after booting the login prompt appears from where I would login. But after making motion autostart I am unable to login or open GUI because motion is using the command line to display status of recording.
I am using motion to record video streams on Linux. In the folder
a script was written to execute motion at startup.
case $1 start) echo "Starting Motion..." sudo motion ;; stop) # when the init daemon performs a shutdown the motion is terminated kill $(pidof motion) ;; *) ;; esac exit 0
This script was made executable and added to boot sequence. My runlevel is 3 (commandline).
