Re: Problems installing ZM (NON-DOCKER)

I do hope you come back with a very verbose bug report because we ARE work on finalizing 1.36 and DO need all the testing. Is 1.36 close to release? I know myself, and I imagine others might be willing to test it, if it's an rc. Somewhat more exciting to test an rc than to test something that is ju...

Re: Problems installing ZM (NON-DOCKER)

These install documents need to be improved. I did the 1.35 version yesterday on a fresh Ubuntu 20.04 install. 1) doing an apt install zoneminder does some kind of partial install, along with populating db making some steps not applicable 2) syntax errors, -uroot for example Trying to work through ...

Re: Ungraceful shutdown SQL needs rebuilt

I recently had a 1.32 (older, yes) db get corrupted after a power loss. I resolved it by restoring the db from scratch. I have had the power drop on 1.30.4 multiple times without one db corruption. I'd say some attention should be paid to any changes that might have made the DB less resilient to pow...

Re: Unable to open input rtsp://admin:xxxx@10.15.67.148:554/realmonitor?channel=0&stream=0.sdp due to: Invalid data

Try source type: libvlc. To install libvlc:
I think it is apt-get install libvlc-dev libvlccore-dev vlc

But possibly omitting vlc. Just try not to pull in X if its not required.

Restart zoneminder service after installing.

https://wiki.zoneminder.com/Finding_Camera_Stream_Paths Either the path is wrong, or the camera is incompatible w/ZM. You can try different source methods (ffmpeg, vlc, remote, file, etc). As an example, if the camera can upload images to an FTP server, then you can use source: file and host the FTP...

Re: Buttons doesn't work

Buttons not working is in my experience either due to malformed install (apache config), or web browser incompatibility.

Re: New Dedicated drive does not exist.

Secondary drives must be compatible filesystem (FAT32 won't work).

Re: Zoneminder not starting

For a beginner, it's easiest to start with a fresh OS. You might have mixed versions of some dependency, with the added repos, and that could complicate things.

What do you mean by: Then add the old db back into mysql/mariadb and # zmupdate.pl to get the db to 1.34? At any time in your old ZM you can make a backup with mysqldump.

Re: Opinions on my crusty old laptop please

A core2duo should be able to handle 2-3 cameras. If you find performance slowing, try lowering resolution or FPS of cameras on their configuration webpage (don't set max FPS on ZM).

2-3 at 720p will be no problem. 2-3 at 4K will be impossible.

Re: install on raspberry 4 buster

If you are not comfortable with changing /etc/apt/sources.list, you should probably stick with 1.32.3 in the official Raspbian repos. More advanced users can try changing from raspbian to debian repos which have more up to date ARM packages for the RPI than the Raspbian repos. Note that I haven't ac...
