Re: Trigger a script when there is an alarm in 1.25

What are you trying to trigger?
On older ubuntu systems with older ZM versions I have a bash script that tails the message log for the monitor name and the phrase "gone into alarm. "

Re: ZM time is off by 8 minutes

It turned out for me the vnc server I had on the system had crapped out. So I could not login .
I drove over 1 day got rid of vnc installed SSH and webmin set the time locally and it's been fine since.
I think the VNC was looped so bad it was killing the cpu causing the clock to loose time.

Re: Status:Alarm Event Duration continuous

Ya if you have the same 2 cameras "linked " they will both record all the time.
Linking 1 camera too another one will make it record when the other camera records.
Remove all the links and reboot it.

zm 1.23.3 on Ubuntu 10.04lts

Could someone post some install info to get v1.23.3 running on 10.04lts.
I tried last spring and had so many "no install candidate " errors that I gave up.
I'd gladly donate to the cause of getting an updated deb package of ZM 1.23.3 .
