Searching forums, found answer. Edit file /usr/local/etc/zm.conf or /etc/zm/zm.conf on other distro. Now, it gets past the database access error. Another error: Use of uninitialized value in transliteration (tr///) at /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.10.0/ZoneMinder/Config.pm line 82, <CONFIG> line 50. Ca...

How can I change the user name and password for the database that Zoneminder uses without rebuilding the entire Zoneminder? I did get it to build, and now I am trying to configure it! I am using the "zmpkg.pl start" command. A live cd is not going to work for me. That is why I am sorting through the...

How do you tell Zoneminder to use a different username and password when you start it? Such as using "yes" instead of "zmpass"?

"access denied for user zmuser@localhost" Again, documentation is needed! Now I need to use the right user name and password ...

Searching, found topic 6214. What is interesting is that I have both /var/www/cgi-bin and /srv/www/cgi-bin as well as both /var/www/html and /srv/www/html, so what difference does it make what pair is selected for "webdir" and for "cgidir"? There was no documentation on that! From topic 6214, it loo...

Searching and finding topic 5498, it looks like the Wiki documentation left out some terms in the Installation from Sources steps. The permissions with mysql! Needed to append "-u root -p" to the mysql commands to get it to work. Now at the "make install" step, get a new error: make install: chown i...

From searching the forums, found topic 11204 and 9874. Then, which is not in the wiki documentation for the build and installation, I did:
/etc/init.d/mysql restart

Now on "mysql < db/zm_create.sql" get

ERROR 1044 (42000): Access denied for user '@'localhost to database 'mysql'.

Some additional documentation help that would be great would be a more in depth explanation of how to use and install and configure Zoneminder. Of particular help would be how to use the mysql when installing Zoneminder. Those who develop for Zoneminder, don't need this, but those who just download ...

I have decided that Zoneminder is not user-friendly! Last time that I used it, it did take some time to get it setup and to work, but I did find some documentation that helped it along the way, and that was for an earlier version. Kept this in the same post, since it is related to the install and co...

There are many dependencies that are needed for OpenSuse 11.1, and sorting them out one by one when trying to compile and build is tedious. Some of the required packages are in non-standard repositories, such as the "Monex" or OBS project repositories. Why isn't Zoneminder included in standard OpenS...

There should be better instructions on how to build and install from a source package. When you download the source package, it is usually compressed. You need to uncompress it, then configure it, then build it, then install it. The README file sometimes helps.

Airlink101 AIC250

Does anyone have the commands to control this camera? I tried to get them from Airlink, but they have been unresponsive.
