Re: Installing Zoneminder on OrangePi PC plus 2

Try using package names like php-gd instead of php5-gd. Most of the world has moved on to php7 since that guide was written.

Re: Raspberry pi3 and h264_mmal

I love the efforts here. Good stuff.

I might suggest you start familiarising yourself with github so we can follow/help/collaborate easier.

Re: How to restart ZM service in response to camera dead?

I would be tempted to use monit to ping the camera and if it goes offline then do a zmdc.pl restart zmc -m whatever. but really... ZM should restart the camera automatically. It is supposed to. There is a zmwatch.pl program that looks for the last time zmc or zma did anything and if it more than som...

Re: ZMC -m 2 existed abnormally. exit status 127. Various other errors. No monitors functioning.

How about from a command line,

sudo zmc -m 2

It might immediately die. But it should generate a file called undef.log which may have some clues in it.

How about turning on debug logging?

Re: Zone minder crash

Only to a point. It is a ram disk, so you are limited by ram. You may be using more ram than needed per camera though. Edit the Monitor and lower the values in the buffers tab, specifically the Image Buffer Size. It defaults to 50, which is actually a lot. It must be more than Pre Event Image Count.

Hey Terry, are you the guy on reddit talking about the same thing? In any event, I'm happy to try to hand hold/whatever assist you..

You can find me on IRC, or just converse over email/whatever.

Re: Raspberry pi3 and h264_mmal

That's really weird. 24bit vs 32bit I mean.. Thing is that most of these CPU instructions work best on 32bit or more.... obviously 24bit uses less ram... but everything else uses less cpu. I'm wondering if you are low on ram so other effects are coming into play? I find it interesting that 24bit mak...

I think there is a merge problem. I'm sure mastertheknife will figure it out soon.

Re: Minimize RAM usage?

Edit your buffer settings. You are probably telling it to allocate 50 buffer frames, when you probably can get by with less than 5.
