    ffserver cannot open ffserver.conf file


    Hello, I use ffserver & ffmpeg in order to generate a live stream (recorded by a webcam).

    I use an embedded processor (SH7724), busybox version 2010.09, kernel 2.6.39.3.

    the command I issue is and its output are attached in file (sorry, forum does not allow me to specify it in here).


    --> It seems for me that ffserver does NOT open the conf file, hence webcam.ffm file is NOT opened.

    I've tried to move the conf file to some other path or to change its name, but it wouldn't help.
    I've also tried to remove the "-f /etc/ffserver.conf" (default location is anyway /etc/ffserver.conf), but it also wouldn't help.

    --> As far as I can tell the problem is that ffserver does NOT care about its conf file

    Do you have any idea? I'm lost....

    Thanks

    Code:
    The ffserver.conf file is:
    ==================
    Port 8090
    # bind to all IPs aliased or not 
    BindAddress 0.0.0.0 
    # max number of simultaneous clients 
    MaxClients 4
    # max bandwidth per-client (kb/s) 
    MaxBandwidth 10000
