Gentoo 1.30.0 Install

Post by clearchris » Tue Sep 13, 2016 3:37 pm


I have been running zoneminder for a few years, and my disk crashed. So, I figured this is a good time to update to the latest version. I created a gentoo overlay (support for ZM in gentoo has been lagging) for my new ebuild files. I will submit these back to Gentoo when I get them working.

I am using zoneminder 1.30.0. Is this the best 1.30 version to use?

I updated the ebuild to pull in the new libv4l dependency.

Now I get an error:

-- Configuring incomplete, errors occurred!
See also "/root/ZoneMinder-1.30.0/CMakeFiles/CMakeOutput.log".

So, I check the log, and I don't see any errors. The same behavoir happens in the ebuild and when I build from source.

Here's the CMakeOutput,log

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

hi clearchris send your method for compiling zm under gentoo.

For me the latest git version 1.30 works under 3 different gentoo system, under one have a little bug with montage review.

And i just add the latest amcrest IP4M-1025E.
This cam produce an detailed image with 4M pixels (2688x1520@20fps - with codec: H264/H264Basic/H264High/MJPEG) with succes and no error in the data flux under RTSP(TCP) with ffmpeg or libvlc. (native zm rtsp do not work)

I am trying to setup my new 1025E but can't seem to get it to work. I'm fairly new to this whole security camera thing and have been beating my head against this for about 4 hours now. I will appreciate any advice.

Your link took me to a blank page so I was unable to see your output, but based on what you stated you might have this error in your logs: ... ts.txt#L13

cmake will continue to processing its config, which puts the message at the very beginning of the long cmake output.

If this is so, you simply need to do what it says and initialize the git submodules, which are required for the zoneminder project.

hello, my final functionnal settings for this good cam (amcrest IP4M-1025E) in ZM:
Source Type= Ffmpeg
Source Path=

Code: Select all

Remote Method= RTP/UNICAST
Target colorspace 32bits
Capture Width= 2688
Capture Height= 1520

Adjust the cam to corresponding settings

the second flux can be added with the first
always with FFmpeg and RPT/unicast settings

Code: Select all

at 640x480 pixel

and you need to verify your amount of shm ram in your linux distrib, high resolution need more memory, and you need to have this memory in your computer...
