Re: Zoneminder system runs into disk problems after 2 months

Thanks, Cordel. I think CentOS defaults to ext4 now also. Suggestions for partitioning for a single drive system?

Re: Zoneminder system runs into disk problems after 2 months

Thanks Paranoid! I'll try that when I rebuild the system.

No, it's not Intel AMT it's this, which is pretty cool: http://www.digital-loggers.com/lpc.html

Re: Zoneminder system runs into disk problems after 2 months

Thanks Keith. However my reading of that thread leads me to believe the conclusion is the drive should be OK as a boot drive. Other web searching does not help much, though on the drive's info page on the WD site it does not mention it to be unsafe as a boot drive. I think the drive ALLOW the use of...

Re: Zoneminder system runs into disk problems after 2 months

Hello: Finally had a chance to get to the system. I ran Memtest 86 for 5 full passes (about 2 hours) which completed without error. Then I let smartctl do a long test which came back without error. I did set up an advance replacement of the hard drive from WD so my next step is to swap out the drive...

Re: MINOR: ZM PHP date.timezone Error [SOLVED]

The fix specifically is to find your php config file (php.ini in /etc or somewhere), find the part about date.timezone and change it to something like this: [Date] ; Defines the default timezone used by the date functions ; http://php.net/date.timezone date.timezone = Europe/London A funny thing tha...

Zoneminder system runs into disk problems after 2 months...

Hello! I have a remote ZM server that I need to run reliably. I installed (ZM 1.25.0) on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS server following some instructions linked from the ZM site. It works pretty well, but twice so far has run into disk problems. The first time I am pretty sure it happened shortly after ZM ran a ...

Re: Centos 6.0 64-bit with ZM 1.25.0, FFmpeg, libjpeg-turbo,

Wow! Thanks for the great how-to (assuming it works! :-)

I may try this, since my script-kiddie Ubuntu 10.04 doesn't manage to keep running more than about two months without running into a dead OS situation (unless I have a bad hard disk).

Re: slow down capture, speed up analysis or increase ring bu

Yeah, maybe try just one zone covering the top 1/3 of that image, settings like what worked for you on the door.

Re: Event Capture Starts, never stops.

The entirely empty event is when the event is open -- still recording. Another way you can stop this endless rogue event is to put the camera into 'monitor' mode instead of modect. That will make it close the event and stop recording. This is a problem I'm having also, but only occasionally. I did f...

Problems after changing the Skin?

I changed the Skin type to XML. After that, I could not log in anymore - got just errors. You can get yourself back to 'normal' by using this url:
