Superb! Let's ditch X

Hello,

This is a very good idea! Leaving X aside increases system performance very much. Almost all of the system freeze-type problems I have had have been related to using X on the same machine.

Very good idea. I might do the Finnish translation.

There are also negative durations

Hi again,

There's also another rather peculiar thing: ZM shows negative durations for some events. For example -1.20 second.

Wrong timestamps in MySQL database

Hello, We have a strange problem with ZM database. We have a lot of pictures taken that have correct timestamp in the image. The faulty date in the database is however always the same: 1969-12-31 16:00:00. This seems to be related to Unix epoch. Is it possible that these faulty timestamps are genera...

Bat movements recorded succesfully indoors with IR-B/W cam

Hi, I found this thread when our system is up and running. We are using ZM for a very specific purpose: monitoring bats during daylight in an attic. The bats stay away from the sunlight during daytime. It is not known, not very well at least what they do and how much they move during daytime. We hav...

Oh, I did log out...

I forgot to mention that yes, the problem arised when logged out of the session. I think is quite natural: in this case the computer is in premises where the people normally working there are not allowed to have access to the ZM computer. I think this is not extraordinary - therefore it is good that...

I guess the problem shows up because of Mandrake's automatic permission adjuster during console logon. One solution that seemed to fix the problem is to edit file /etc/security/console.perms and add permissions for v4l group: <console> 0666 <v4l> 0666 root.video Probably 0660 would be enough, but we...

Problems with user rights to video device

Hello, Is there some program or routine that changes the rights for video devices? After leaving the ZM in mocord mode the program relatively soon stops reading video feed. I find these error messages from the log: Jul 4 05:56:30 videoserver zmc-d0[17379]: ERR [Failed to open video device /de v/vide...

Kernel problems with AMD K6/2 processor

Hi, Call me mad if you want to but I still would like to use ZM with one camera attached to it. I am succesfully running LiveCD 1.19.1 installed in a machine based on Gigabyte 7VTXE mobo and AMD Duron 1.0. I would like to give it a try in another machine: Asus P5A mobo and AMD K6/2 333 Mhz processor...
