Please...it's jamming two different paths together somehow.

This is the actual error message when trying to retrieve events: Can't open /usr/share/zoneminder//media/500Reiser/events/2/12/06/05/15/46/22/001-capture.jpg: No such file or directory This is being generated by component "zms" under file "zm_event.cpp" per the logs.

Re: Weird error: Can't open /usr/share/zoneminder//media...

Thank you for your great pearl of wisdom oh mighty zone-geek. Only one problem. See where I said "I checked the paths"? Yeah, that means I made sure that there wasn't two different paths jammed together with a double-slash in the middle in this epically retarted fashion. Somehow this piece of crap i...

Re: Hello to Everybody!

It's out of beta and working - at least for most people. If you have an NVidia video card, you're going to want driver 295.49 instead of .40 - the .40 version was a complete fiasco and a half. .49 is available as .deb files...solves a lot of issues.

Re: Hello to Everybody!

I've been fighting with ZM for ages. It turns out THE top solution is to upgrade to 12.04, because *finally* there's a real working easily installed copy of 1.25 there. You need to follow the directions at my post here: http://www.zoneminder.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=29&t=19172 Install 12.04, then ...

Can I secure this sucker for remote access via Apache?

...and if so how? This is assuming I can't fix ZM's internal security, which appears to be completely malformed. Turning it on kills the video, the log says "authentication errors" up the yinyang, YET if that's a problem then why can I get back in and turn authentication OFF? Ghaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa...

Turning on "authentication" (OPT_USE_AUTH) kills all video?!

OK, this is just plain WTF. I have everything working. Finally. Last step is to get remote access going but I better put a password on it, right? Except turning on passwords kills it - in the console, click on a monitor, no video. Can't do playback either. Huh? AUTH_TYPE of "builtin" or "remote" doe...

Re: after upgrade ubuntuserver 10.04 -> 12.04 - zoneminder f

I was in the same place. But there's a fairly easy fix. First, install Zoneminder through the standard 12.04 repos - they have 1.25 in there. Standard "Ubuntu Software Center" actually works. Second, do this: Make sure apache2 is installed prior to installing ZM Then install zoneminder and then run ...

Same problem here. Can't issue a start command from the ZM Console. And if I check the logs after trying, all I get is:

Folks, I have ZM 1.25 running well on an Ubuntu 11.10 setup and a pair of DCS-920 Dlink WiFi cams. I'm now trying to add a USB webcam for the office area near the server, plugged straight into USB.

Can somebody please tell me what distro will compile 1.25?

I'm losing my mind here. I just attempted to install ZM 1.25 on Fedora 13, the last Fedora variant mentioned here: http://www.zoneminder.com/wiki/index.php/Fedora Those instructions no longer work because the RPM Fusion project no longer supports 13. I've attempted to compile 1.25 under two differen...
