Re: crashed, signal 134

I tried doubling the shared memory and that did not help.

Does anyone know what is going on with my setup?

Re: crashed, signal 134

After playing around with it apparently I cannot add another axis camera. The maximum cameras I can have are 12 Axis cameras and the 3 PTZ foscam cones. I disabled my Axis M3204 camera to get all of my essential cameras working. The M3204 is just a weather camera and is not needed for Zoneminder. So...

I just replace an old foscam clone with an Axis M3203 camera and I keep getting this in the logs. 2014-09-29 13:59:01.391500 zmdc 1880 INF 'zmc -m 28' crashed, signal 134 zmdc.pl 2014-09-29 13:59:00.041170 zmdc 2401 INF 'zmc -m 28' started at 14/09/29 13:59:00 zmdc.pl 2014-09-29 13:59:00.040930 zmdc...

Re: Cannot export event.

Finally got around to fixing this issue.

The owner of the directory /var/cache/zoneminder/temp was root. I changed the owner to www-data.

Now exporting works.

Re: View ZM on TV (non IP)

There are several ways to do it. This is how I would do it. You need a computer. Linux or windows If you have an extra hdmi port in the tv you will need an video card in the pc that can output hdmi If you have an extra s-video/composit/component on the tv you will need a vga to whatever converter.

Re: Control tab doesn't show up

If you have a controllable PTZ camera you need to go to options, system tab, and enable OPT_CONTROL.

Re: Memory or RamDrive Buffer?

I dont know exactly how ZM works but doesn't it keep all incoming frames in memory until there is an event? When the alarm is triggered the event gets recorded to the hard drive.

Or does ZM use swap space for all incoming frames and processing?

Cannot export event.

When trying to export an event I get this error in the logs.

2013-10-14 17:42:55.407048 web_php 16822 FAT Can't open event export list file 'temp/zmFileList.txt' /usr/share/zoneminder/skins/classic/includes/export_functions.php 1084

Any idea on what is causing this? Is this a permissions issue?

Re: 24x7 camera monitor screen

you can create your own html page that will connect to the cameras directly. This will lighten the load on the server and the images wont freeze unless your cameras mess up. Thats if you have IP cameras. You could still make a custom html page that connects to the zoneminder server to grab the image...

Re: AMD cpu and 64bit question

Thanks for the reply. I was thinking about upgrading it with my current intel i7 machine and get a new one to use as my main pc but if the new improvements work with AMD 64bit I'll give it a try when I get the time. The reason I asked this was because for some reason I remember reading that the opti...

AMD cpu and 64bit question

I think I remember a while back that the speed improvements for image processing only worked on intel based cpu's with SSE and only 32bit OS. Am I wrong on this? I currently run an AMD athlon ii x4 640 and kubuntu 64bit. Will the new optimizations work with this combo?

Re: Axis camera tweaks still needed for 1.26.2

Are you have the issue with the + sign not saving in your axis camera? The cameras I'm using have the latest firmware and save the + sign. Really the only issue I have with zmtrigger was that it was restarting every 5 minutes which I think was causing some events to not stop recording. I'm still on ...

Re: Port 6802 closes after first event

If I were you I would revet back to the original zmtrigger.pl file and try to use the + sign on the camera. My camera is the M3203 with the latest firmware and it will save the + sign. No need to modify the zmtrigger.pl script like what is listed in the wiki.
