Replies: 18

So, yes I want to connect with root remotely to admin the MySQL server. I have already commented out the "skip networking" line and it did not help. I'm getting a "not allowed to connect" message.
And you set a password for mysql user "root"?

pacman -Sy will update the pacman db. As you have probably already discovered upgrading the whole system is not a good idea since it will break zoneminder. But you will probably be OK just adding a few packages. Look cosely at what pacman wants to pull in as dependancies. If there is something that ...

There is no password set for mysql user "root", so you can set your own. If you launch firefox in zmlarch the homepage document tells you this. To connect remotely you will need to comment the the line that says "skip networking" in /etc/my.cnf and then restart mysqld. Are you sure you want to conne...

There are no passwords set for user or root. Set one for root with "sudo passwd"
Set one for user with "sudo passwd user"

New feature of makepkg :)

Do this
makepkg -g >>PKGBUILD && makepkg

I haven't tried building from an up to date system for awhile though. There may be some other issues. Let me know how it goes.

I think you have a couple of probably unrelated things going on here. The choice of shared or mapped memory is made at compile time, and I opted for shared so that user maciekc's Raw Stream Viewer could be used. http://www.zoneminder.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=5600 These errors are caused by the web...

Sorry, this should be better documented. As with previous "ZMliveCD" installations the recommended partitions scheme is a small (~3GB) / partition, a swap partition id desired, and the rest mounted under /var. This way logging gone wild from debug settings, misconfigured purge filter, package manage...

Yes, comment out that line and uncomment the one below it.
#c1:2345:respawn:/sbin/agetty -8 38400 vc/1 linux
Or you can edit /home/user/.bash_profile and remove the lines that start X.

Is it a problem that it's a SCSI drive? RAID5 actually
HP SmartArray hardware raid controller. The larchin installer doesn't recognize it (yet). If you have any luck hacking it you could let us know what you did :)

Please try running the installer from a terminal with root privs.
'sudo /opt/larchin/run/larchin.py'

I think I had had hacked the .desktop link to use sudo but maybe it has overwritten by the last update. I'll investigate further when I get a little time.

It will break :(

It's not practical to try to update. Best to install fresh with an up to date OS. You can try my archlinux based ZMlarch or there are a couple of ubuntu based installers. There are also ubuntu and suse packages.

I need to put something in the wiki on this. In effort to keep the system light ZMLarch doesn't use a display manager (typical runlevel 5). It's set up like this: /etc/inittab runs autologin for 'user' /home/user/.bash_profile starts X So you can edit either of those to change the behavior. And than...
