Managed to sort one problem (shmall was spelt wrongly in sysctl.conf). They are both set to 134217728. Now zmwatch gives the following: 11/14/09 00:04:34.789517 zmwatch[2513].INF [Watchdog starting] 11/14/09 00:04:34.801212 zmwatch[2513].INF [Watchdog pausing for 30 seconds] 11/14/09 00:10:22.771383...

As far as IE is concerned, (this is another computer by the way, I'm greedy, I have 4) I just installed Safari as my default browser..
If I ever get the hang of Ubuntu, I'll just replace Windows altogether on the other computers.

But the Zoneminder recording problem is something else..

Does not record to hard drive

I have an Emachines E4026 computer with an Intel Pentium 2.9GHz with a measly 1GB memory I've come a long way in the three weeks that I've been fooling around with Linux. I just have the one problem left... -except for the Gconf problem when I'm in root - but that can wait. I have pictures on the ho...

Oh dear, you're not going to like this, I went to System/Authorisations and changed all the implicit authorisations to yes... Everything. Well, sudo chmod 777 etc. wasn't doing anything. Sorry, but it was the only way I could get the cameras up and running. Works a treat now.. :wink: and then again....

Thanks for the info. It still doesn't do it for me. I think I'm missing something here... lspci -n 05:01.0 0400: 109e:036e (rev 11) 05:01.1 0480: 109e:0878 (rev 11) I do remember reading about a windows program that would scan the card and cameras, I think it was from Sourceforge, but I don't know i...

There is a 4 year old thread ( I replied to it, not realising it's age)

http://www.zoneminder.com/forums/viewto ... 7257#57257

It describes the card perfectly according to the screen dumps.

Is there any way that this info can help me getting 4 screens with something other than black?

If CPC sold you this, then I believe it to be the AEI Technologies Big Brother Stealth Au4 card. Would only work in Windows XP and even that seemed to stop after SP2 and various other security patches was downloaded. The software was a heap of junk, and the card a difficult beggar to get working. I ...

I have at last successfully loaded Zoneminder 1.23 on a Jaunty system (it used to be karmic, but I dumped that!).

I've had a look at the my.cnf file as per http://www.directadmin.com/forum/showpost.php?p=147911&postcount=33 and found about 6 lines that all had /var/run/mysql instead of /var/lib/mysql so I changed that and now I get mysqld 091107 21:32:41 [Warning] options --log-slow-admin-statements, --log-quer...
