Buy more memory! I am doing B/W 358x288 pixels at 20 fps and I can barely manage with a 1 GHz Athlon and 512 Mb of RAM.

I am glad to hear that my bat videos made you glad. What we are doing here is quite unique and I am quite fascinated, too.

Bat videos captured with ZM online

Dear developers and users of ZM, At last I remember posting a sample of our work done with ZM. We have been watching a maternity roost or a maternity colony of Northern bat (Eptesicus nilssonii). A maternity colony means that these bats have a very sophisticated level of ensuring the growth of their...

Mandrake 10.0 lilo handling is the problem

Hello, I think I am able to cope with the situation. The problem was: a HDD containing a ZM setup that worked in another computer would not boot. LiveCD boot was OK and the partitions on the HDD were accessible. I tried to resolve the problem chrooting the root parition and rewriting LILO. No succes...

Where are zone settings saved?

Hello, folks! I have a HDD with a ZM livecd installation on it. I should copy the zone settings to another computer. Unfortunately I cannot boot the HDD at the moment - I ran into the Mandrake's Lilo bug and messed up the dependencies so that ZM or Apache won't run. I would like to copy the settings...

You said it ;-)

Ross, Thanks for welcoming me back! You were right! That was the problem. I still have to do some fine tuning as I am going to use 2 cams this time: one watching hibernating bats and another watching the cave entrance for people & other animals... One more question even if it is not so LiveCD-relate...

New LiveCD Installation - cannot get picure to ZM

Hello, I need a little help. Seems like I have forgotten something during the last 6 months. I have fresh Live cd 1.19.5. install. I am unable to get a picture to ZM.

SATA works when chipset support is compiled into the kernel

Hello, I have made progress: I have managed to make an installation on an IDE-HDD so that the SATA-HDD partitions are automounted with no trouble. The trick to do this is to compile a new kernel including the SATA support and the appropriate low-level SATA chipset module into the kernel. The tmb ker...

I think a custom kernel is needed

Hello, Ross & others! I've been asking about this SATA problem from my friends using Linux. First, it seems my assumption about the boot failure being caused by the nonreadability of initrd seems to be wrong. I reviewed lilo.conf before I wrote a new boot sector with lilo. As said - I am still getti...

Still debugging - where is initrd read from?

Hello, I think I was right in guessing that the umount commands I was wondering in the last message should be given after exiting from the chrooted shell (/dev/sda1 file system). Booting is not successful. The SATA disk is recognized but the root file system cannot be mounted. I get error 6 and a ke...

Problem seems to be in hwdetect

Hello, I followed your advice but ran into more problems. I think the problem might be in how hwdetect does things. It seems that hwdetect does not do the mounting of partitions correctly. More precisely installing module and running hwdetect creates mountpoints to the partitions but directory listi...

The problem is in mpeg2enc

Hello, I found an answer with "a little help from my friends". The problem is mpeg2enc. Even though the man page claims that the option -f 8 generates mpegs "for dvdauthor", they are not DVD compatible. I think mpeg2enc does something wrong when inserting the empty VOB frames to the stream. Doing mp...
