You may be bit by a bug in the hostname setup on installed systems. Edit both /etc/rc.conf and /etc/hosts and make sure the hostname in both is the same. The zmhost_nn(n)_nn(n) from the livecd network setup needs to either be changed to match the /etc/rc.conf hostname or vice versa. Of course you c...

I've worked with a few different document imaging systems and all of them use a database to index images that are stored in a file system, a.k.a. data warehousing. While on the surface there appears to be a better reason to store them in a database, there were always things that would have made it a...

I have been having to do a pacman -U http://arm.kh.nu/2010/02/22...... and enter the whole path to the package I had found on the servers that had been u...

Then check by running "mysql -u root -p"
running this as root, I get:

mysqladmin: connect to server at 'localhost' failed
error: 'Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES)'

And you set a password for mysql user "root"? I tried following the instructions I found on how to do that but it wouldn't work. It said I had to kill mysqld and start it in safe mode, then issue some commands at the mysql> prompt. But, when I start it up it appears to start and just kind of hangs....

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 conn...

Having some real problems with this. I get "not allowed to connect". From what I've read it has something to do with the hostname in MySQL not matching the real host name of the computer. It's my understanding I need to reset the root password to MySQL in order to get into it to fix this, but all th...

ZMLarch MySQL root password?

I can't find it anywhere. Anyone???

I want to build a console that displays links to all my cameras, events, etc. I have 5 servers across two locations and I want to make it as easy as possible for the users to manage.

I'm confused. This thread appears to be with regards to updating ZM and not Arch Linux??

I've been using ZMLarch CD since I posted this and it works very well--once I configured it better. See my post here for the details on how I did it and the results.

Installing Arch Linux packages

I used to be able to do a pacman -S inetutils but apparently the package has been updated and now I have to do a pacman -U http://arm.kh.nu/2010/02/22/core/os/i686/inetutils-1.7-2-i686.pkg.tar.gz in order to install the package. Is there any way to update the library or whatever in Arch Linux to get...

Ok, I reloaded the first server using the other config with a 25GB EXT root partition and a 1.4TB reiserfs partition for /var and a 6GB swap partition. All I can say on performance is WOW. I'm quite amazed at the difference. I have it loaded up with 20 cameras with a mix of record and modetect (abou...

Here is what i would do, if it helps: /dev/sda1 - 128MB /boot, ext2 /dev/sda2 - 30GB /root, ext4 /dev/sda3 - 10GB /home, ext4(prefered) or ext3 (do you really need a home partition in a server? might want to use 40GB root if no\unsure) /dev/sda4 - 1.45TB /var, ext4(prefered) or reiserfs /dev/sda5 -...

partition & drive configs

I'm using the ZMLarch build for 1.24.2 and trying to learn the best way to set it up. The servers are dual 3.2GHz XEON, 4GB, with a single 1.5TB drive. Again, I'm not real familiar with the "proper" way to set up a system. The first system was set up more or less blind--I had just a very basic under...
