usb webcam with zoneminder on 9.10 server 64 bit


Hi:

I followed this instruction to install zoneminder
http://www.zoneminder.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=14819

The problem is i am unable to view any video.

I have difficult to fix the problem as I'm using a server
edition and alot of recommendations require gui programs.

I wanted to know if the server edition have
v4l1/v4l2 drivers installed by default?

Are there command line ways to query the camera.

I have used zmu from zoneminder to query the camera
and my errors

are

:/usr/lib# zmu -d /dev/video0 -q -v
12/08/09 00:21:40.104844 zmu[-1].INF-zm_debug.c/224 [Debug Level = 9, Debug Log = <none>]
12/08/09 00:21:40.112627 zmu[-1].ERR-zm_local_camera.cpp/913 [Failed to query crop: Invalid argument]
Error, failed to query crop /dev/video0: Invalid argument

here is printout of syslog:

Dec 8 00:07:29 zeus zmc_dvideo0[2384]: INF [Debug Level = 0, Debug Log = <none>]
Dec 8 00:07:29 zeus zmc_dvideo0[2384]: INF [Starting Capture]

Dec 8 00:07:29 zeus zmdc[1380]: ERR ['zmc -d /dev/video0' exited abnormally, exit status 255]


any help is greatly appreciated.

thanks
