Re: Email stopped working??? 1.26.4

Re: New install -already running apache- linking zm conf?

Yes, you could put all of this in your main httpd.conf, but by keeping it a separate file, the zoneminder package maintainers can easily keep the directives specific to zoneminder isolated and updated independently of your main httpd.conf file. Would you prefer to be making hand edits to merge their...

Re: New install -already running apache- linking zm conf?

The symlink into /etc/apache2/conf.d is the standard Debian/Ubuntu approach to adding new components to your existing Apache installation. It does not replace your running Apache configuration nor should it affect anything on your server unless you have stuff already under a /zm/ path. Take a look a...

Re: Signal 11 - segmentation fault errors - backtrace includ

If I may make a suggestion: use signed ints for everything. If you need that one extra bit that you've lost to the sign, it's rare that one additional bit will solve your problem permanently, so just upgrade to a 64-bit signed int. The safety and readability and maintainability benefits of using con...

Re: Zoneminder 1.26 false alarms on webcam disconnects

I think a disconnection itself is also cause to trigger an alarm, independently of motion. Possibly this could be a configurable option. The way I've solved it with my cameras is to increase the Alarm Frame Count in the Buffers tab to 2. The disconnection alarm seems to only hit one frame.

Re: Signal 11 - segmentation fault errors - backtrace includ

I suspect this was due to the use of an unsigned int rather than an int at zm_remote_camera_http.cpp:1148, but looking at HEAD this appears to be fixed (commit 5a9364703c983bc7177a306f5446b91854c5dd09 by mastertheknife). I, not being a regular contributor to the project, would expect this problem to...

Future development: Separation of components, pubsub, 3D

I wanted to post this to the Future Development forum but my request to join the group has been pending for a while now so I thought I'd post it here while the ideas are still fresh. All of the components of ZM are tightly coupled. I'd like to see future versions written more with an eye toward sepa...

Re: Memory or RamDrive Buffer?

Most operating systems already use such a buffer for disk writes. Writing a thousand tiny files in a short period of time does not result in a thousand tiny write IOPS. For Linux specifically (the site won't let me paste links since I'm a "new user", but you can probably figure these out): www thoma...
