Re: Upgrading 1.30.2 to 1.32.3 on U18.04

And I want to pass along my compliments on the new skinning too; it looks very pretty. One question: I saw "rearrange montage" in the release notes, is that only the straight Montage, not the Montage Review? I tend to prefer the latter, as it isn't as sensitive to "concurrent stream" configuration i...

Re: Update to 1.32.3 error

The GRANT fix early in this thread worked for me as well, sorting a broken PPA-based upgrade from 1.30.2, to 1.32.3, as covered in a thread elsewhere.

Thanks.

Re: Upgrading 1.30.2 to 1.32.3 on U18.04

There was a missing GRANT on my DB, likely. I followed the instructions here , and reran zmupdate.pl as root, and it ran ok this time, and zm restarted and I can access it, and all my monitors are there, and all is well. Perhaps those commands should be added to the update script? Sidenote: it reall...

Re: Upgrading 1.30.2 to 1.32.3 on U18.04

Well, what a bummer. A number of steps in the autoupgrade failed, not including the DB upgrades, and for some reason, all the logging scroll has disappeared out of my terminal scrollback buffer, so I can't see (or post) it. Does the autoupgrade script tee that off to somewhere? The most important pa...

In work. Turns out that the old PPA file in the sources-list.d was automagically disabled by... somebody.

Oh, this is systemd-related?

systemd is evil. I'll stick with the mounts I have. Thanks. :-)

Re: Performance tuning time

I see I never followed up on this.

I ended up replacing the box with the 4-core i7 it should have been in the first place; I now idle at .8 and don't break 4 with a 12-camera montage review up.

My thanks to all the people who contributed.

Re: Upgrading 1.30.2 to 1.32.3 on U18.04

Ok. So I should be able to 1) Bring down 1.30 2) Remove the old PPA 3) $ sudo apt upgrade 4) Bring up 1.32.3 and let it do it's upgradingly stuff 5) Bring it back down again once it's done, and then 6) Unmount those 2 deep mounts and put the relevant paths in the configuration manually, at my leisur...

Re: Upgrading 1.30.2 to 1.32.3 on U18.04

'Remove the old PPA first'. Great tip!

The upgrade script, will it automatically unwind the overlay mount thingamajig? Or am I going to have to do that manually before I start the new version?

Re: Upgrading 1.30.2 to 1.32.3 on U18.04

Yup, confirmed: I'm a doofus. Isaac's PPA now shows up in Synaptic as an upgrade, and I'll run it tonight when I have some time free. Thanks again to Isaac for maintaining a PPA for the package. ${EXCUSE}, but I'll chip in some coin when I can. ( Just now, the variable is filled with "being evicted ...

Re: Upgrading 1.30.2 to 1.32.3 on U18.04

<sound="screeching brakes">

Sorry; I apparently did not read *closely* enough the Easy Way, where it notes there's a new PPA for each release. I'll go add

$ add-apt-repository ppa:iconnor/zoneminder-1.32

and try again.

Re: Stuck in Privacy Page - Can't Access Console (New Install)

Indeed. I strongly recommend -- and I recommend this having been stupid enough to not do it -- that if it's your first ZM install, you install it on a documented/supported platform, even if you have to dredge up a spare box to do that on. Once you've installed it and it works, you'll have aslightly ...

Re: Upgrading 1.30.2 to 1.32.3 on U18.04

I suppose I should have said that the 1.30.2 install's been running fine for almost 2 years, with 12 cams at 720p on an i7 with 8GB of RAM and 16GB of swap.

Upgrading 1.30.2 to 1.32.3 on U18.04

I've read the install guide and the wiki Easy Way's and I still have a couple questions. My 1.30.2 install appears to be from APT on the Ubuntu LTS install; the box is checked in Synaptic anyways. But that also appears to be the most recent packaged version for U18. First: is that correct? If not, I...
