Re: Question about setting up ZoneMinder for surveillance general inquiry

1. Your best bet is to set up a Linux "server" or basic headless box. You can use an old PC and get good performance. I use an older i5 quad core with 16 GIG of RAM and a 1 TB drive. 17 cameras record motion in a busy warehouse 30 miles away and the drive is about 70% full at the rate of 5 FPS 640x...

First I am giving myself a gold star for reading all 41 pages. I am confident these questions have not been asked before.

Well i have to chuckle at that one. I chose fedora Linux because zoneminder is developed on it, so i figured it would have to work. And now you are telling me the only Linux with the zm_mpeg.h file problem is fedora. Oh man to funny. BTW i am using fedora core 7.
