I'm having the same problem with the 1.24.3 download - haven't tried SVN.
Can you confirm what page you are getting this and also do a ls -l and an md5sum on functions.php?

LuizCB:

I just pulled ZM from SVN, revision 3304 and attempted compiling it on my zoneminder box (Gentoo x86):
I did this by:
1) grabbing rev 3304
2) autoconf
3) automake
4) ./configure --prefix=/usr --build=i686-pc-linux-gnu --host=i686-pc-linux-gnu --mandir=/usr/share/man --infodir=/usr/share/info --datadir=/usr/share --sysconfdir=/etc --localstatedir=/var/lib --with-libarch=lib --with-mysql=/usr --with-ffmpeg --with-webdir=/var/www/zoneminder/htdocs --with-cgidir=/var/www/zoneminder/cgi-bin --with-webuser=apache --with-webgroup=apache --enable-debug=no --enable-crashtrace=no CPPFLAGS="-D__STDC_CONSTANT_MACROS"
5) make

Successfully compiled.

Here is my config.log:
http://pastebin.com/FAqCatna



EDIT: LuizCB your problem is here:

Code: Select all

cc1plus: error: /usr/local/bin/ffmpeg/include: Not a directory
It seems the --with-ffmpeg parameter needs to be a prefix. On my system ffmpeg is in /usr/bin/ffmpeg and the includes in /usr/include, so it should be --with-ffmpeg=/usr and for your system, --with-ffmpeg=/usr/local

Im unable to reproduce this. Backed up my functions.php and replaced it with one from SVN rev 3304 (latest) and everything works including streaming.
Do you have php short tags disabled in your php.ini? (running fedora?)

I have made 2 commits to SVN that resolves some security issues with the eyeZm/XML Plugin, as well as changing the official name of the plugin to eyeZm. Under the options tab, you will see eyeZm now instead of XML. All of the database variables are changed accordingly also.

The only caveat here is the plugin will (and must) still reside in skins/xml for some time. Please run a zmupdate.pl -f after updating from trunk (if you use eyeZm).

Thanks.

Realtime CLI log [EDITED - at beginning, ./configure shows as being messed up, probably in copy/past. Real ./configure syntax used is as config.log, i.e.

[EDITED/APPENDED]
make install log
make uninstall log
Phil, make note Natty is very volatile at this stage, with packages being constantly updated. For instance, I just did an upgrade and there are packages that may alter some ZM results.
apt-get upgrade wrote:The following packages will be upgraded:
cpp-4.5 dbconfig-common debconf debconf-i18n g++-4.5 gcc-4.5 gcc-4.5-base indicator-application klibc-utils libcups2 libcupsimage2 libgcc1 libgomp1 libkeyutils1 libklibc libstdc++6 libstdc++6-4.5-dev
However, since you are now actively developing and testing next release, I hope what I'm leaving here would help you in some way - that's why I'm doing it, not really/only for my own usage of ZM. So, if not good, tell me to stop it and I'll be a good fellow doing it :)
I'm going to do a clean install again, 'by the book', because I'm not happy with those

Thank you, mastertheknife for the advise. I noticed that in my log and i didn't realize what were wrong. Besides too tired at the time for researching on it.

Thanks a lot

OK, I'm feeling kinda brave. :)

Any tips for those who might want to upgrade from 1.24.2 to the 1.24.3 preview? Will we be able to use our existing databases as-is? What about the new memory-mapped file stuff, which I read somewhere could slow your system down if not configured correctly; any suggestions (or, better yet, a HOWTO)? Anything else we need to know so we don't eff something up? :D

Your database will stay in-tact. Just download the source to a separate directory, configure/make (read the Wiki documentation first), and if and only if that goes OK, you run a make install and then zmupdate.pl -f. This will freshen your database to match 1.24.3, but keeps all of your existing settings.

Read the wiki on backing up your database in any event. Super easy.

The Deed is Done

Post by dvarapala » Tue Feb 22, 2011 3:33 am

I upgraded my system tonight using the tarball linked in the first post to this thread. For the most part it went smoothly; however, there were a few unsettling messages spit out by zmupdate.pl during the database update process:
Upgrading database to version 1.24.3
Loading config from DB

Saving config to DB

Database successfully upgraded from version 1.24.2.
Dunno if these are any cause for concern or not.

Upon firing up the new version for the first time, I noticed immediately that none of the monitor windows were showing a fps value or an event history. Running a query via the event filter showed the events to be intact, so I fiddled around with the settings and finally got the event lists to come back by changing he bandwidth setting from High down to Medium, saving it, and then changing it back to High again. :?

Anyway, so far so good. :D

Your messages are fine... it's just getting rid of database configuration variables that don't exist anymore for 1.24.3. Database 'pruning'.

Hi Phil,

rev 3302 introduced a bug. On my computer with both V4L1 and V4L2 installed i was only seeing V4L1 formats and palettes when selecting V4L2.

This is probably what you meant to do:

Thanks for that I will take a look and fix now I am back again. The Natty changes whereby V4L1 is now removed have proved to be a bit of a pain.

The new temporary directory of /tmp/zm is just a suggestion. Assuming you are building from source then you can add ZM_TMPDIR=/tmp to the configure line to just use the regular temporary directory. However your change is valid anyway.
