Gigabyte mobos, from past experience, can be very particular about their RAM, so make sure you stick exactly to their HCL for memory.

I had the same problem on a Fedora 7 install. I used the command:

Code: Select all

perl -MCPAN -e shell
Set that up and at the prompt it gives, type "install PHP::Serialization" (without quotes) and it should work for you.

SQL statement causing the problem: select E.* from Events as E inner join Monitors as M on E.MonitorId = M.Id where E.StartTime <= '2007-12-20 12:32:08' order by E.StartTime desc I'm not exactly sure why this statement needs to be run when I'm just trying to view a single event in non-DVR mode.

6 in the one I first noticed it on, but I checked all the others (event ones with short 3 sec motion clips as well as mocord clips) and they are all affected.

The more-recent SVNs of ffmpeg appear to have changed url_fclose() as well as depreciated img_convert(). Neouser's mod works for me.

Event View (allowed memory) Fatal Error

I just stumbled upon what appears to be a long-standing bug/error in my RC2. http://www.zoneminder.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=1209&highlight=events+allowed+memory makes note of a similar occurance in 2004, as well as http://www.zoneminder.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=9336&highlight=events+allowed+memo...

I have a document that I use to store personal notes about ZM (such as patches I applied/wrote, configurations, etc), and I think my section on shared memory may help you. If you will be using a large number of cameras, or large resolutions (such as multiple 640x480s), you will need to add these two...

Just to clarify, the database thing Phil mentions is the default value for Monitors -> LabelFormat column in the zm database. Just change the %f to a %N using your favorite MySQL editor (phpmyadmin or webmin are my personal favorites) and you'll be fine. (the fix above overrides that default value a...

I'm no Linux expert (important think to remember), but I think one could set up a multi-disk system by setting up all 100 cameras, and then deleting the folders created in zm/events and replacing them with (soft/hard?) links to a folder set up on each drive. You don't even need to do that now - Zon...

I currently operate a 220ish FPS IP-based ZM server pulling from 9 locations that are on ADSL (256k up). I pull 320x240 color at about 1 or 2 fps before the DSL is strained. Pulling B&W will spare some of that bandwidth, so you should get 3fps steady. To save your bandwidth though, you would most li...

And of course, you'd probably like your cameras to continue running for a time during a power outage as well. We have our ZM box on a nice 1500 VA UPS and our PoE cameras split over a couple 800s. Gives us some good running time even after the power goes out.
