    Webcam Problems...

    I finaly got my webcam to work.....

    But when I run the webcam program that xawtv has I get this error message:
    reading config file: /root/.webcamrc
    video4linux webcam v1.3 - (c) 1998-2001 Gerd Knorr
    grabber config:
    size 352x240 [24 bit TrueColor (LE: bgr)]
    input 0 , norm 0 , jpeg quality 75
    rotate=0, top=0, left=0, bottom=240, right=352
    ftp config:
    local transfer webcam /uploading.jpeg => webcam /webcam.jpg
    "-=( GabeCam 06 Dec 2001 at 10:06 )=-"
    open webcam /uploading.jpeg: No such file or directory

    This is my webcamrc:
    [ftp]
    host=localhost
    user=gmoreno
    pass=**********
    dir=webcam
    file=webcam.jpg
    #tmp=tmp.jpg
    passive=1
    debug=0
    auto=0
    local=1

    [grab]
    #device=/dev/video
    text="-=( GabeCam %d %b %Y at %H:%M )=-"
    width=352
    height=240
    delay=60
