Initial setup, all sources red, exit status 255

Post by KApperson » Sun May 13, 2012 11:36 am

Hey all, I've spend all night going back and forth across this forum and the wiki and couldn't find anything. I'm convinced I've missed something simple, but figured I'd ask.

After testing out 3 different USB cams:
  • Logitech Pro 9000
  • Sony Eye
  • Logitech C310
I'm still getting the same errors. All sources on my console screen are red, and the zmdc.log has the same repeating errors, along these lines:

Starting pending process, zmc -d /dev/video0
'zmc -d /dev/video0' starting at ...
'zmc -d /dev/video0' exited abnormally, exit status 255
Starting pending process zma -m 4
'zma -m 4' starting at ...
Starting pending process, zmc -d /dev/video2
'zmc -d /dev/video2' starting at ...
Starting pending process, zma -m 3
'zma -m 3' starting at ...
Starting pending process, zma -m 2
'zma -m 2' starting at ...
Starting pending process, zmc -d /dev/video1
'zmc -d /dev/video1' starting at ...
'zma -m 4' exited abnormally, exit status 255
'zmc -d /dev/video2' exited abnormally, exit status 255
'zma -m 2' exited abnormally, exit status 255
'zma -m 3' exited abnormally, exit status 255
'zmc -d /dev/video1' exited abnormally, exit status 255


It seems to just continue this process every few minutes. I've checked permissions (as far as I can tell), I've checked the settings (as far as I can tell), it seems that everything is hung up on that 'status 255', which, I'm sure is a silly fix that I missed.

Let me know if I can provide a more full log or any other information on my configuration.

Thanks.

I have exactly the same problem see:

Unfortunately I don't have the solution yet.
I can tell you that upgrading to 1.25 will not help (not that I expected it to).

Have you tried setting the mpeg live format and mpeg replay formats to blank under the options tab? Helped for me when using a USB input.

I'm not sure if it will help you but I found my zoneminder started to work when dropped the zm database and re-installed.
Note that this is after upgrading to 1.25 as well. So I've no idea what was broken that is now fixed.
