Cordel, o.k. it was just the terminology I had not heard before. I mean a base install as in minimal that you can get away with installing for a distro. Headless means no desktop or x11. I've now got a (Ross) LiveCD System "running" under the KVM Manager. Your claim of 10 Minutes to get a custom sys...

I don't quite understand why you would go to all the Fedora trouble though, when there are good VM Operating Systems all over the place that are plug and play... I know they work in VMware and proxmox.. Fire away if there's anything I can help you with along the way.. Chuck D Maybe I do not know be...

Cordel I'm glad I started this thread. I am just begining to understand some of the issues. As Chuck D points out there are any number distributions each to their own. I don't have enough experience yet to list the Pros and Cons. O.k. you like RHEL. I had a new PC delivered with RHEL Workstation Cli...

I do all my testing in a XEN VM with and without binding hardware, I have seen no problems so far. I have not really loaded a bunch of cameras on it though, just 4 to 6 as the server has several other intended functions. I still use a dedicated machine for my ZM around the house. Hi Cordel, I start...

I have found KVM (Kernel Virtual Machine ?) delivered with Fedora to be reasonably easy to setup and use. In a short space of time I had the following...

Hello All, I would like to correct my statement about producing still pictures. ZoneMinder is capturing motion correctly. The Controls situation has me baffled.

I would be very interested to know if you found out what breaks PTZ
