Unfortunately that script has all the safeties off, and I noticed a shade late that apt was going to uninstall zoneminder since it has ffmpeg as a dependency.
FFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUu.... you get the idea. Unfortunately apt was faster than my reading and hitting control-c. So... old install of zoneminder 1.27.(can't remember) nuked. Great. Wonderful.
OK, no problem... just go and do an apt-get install zoneminder, should fix everything, right?
Er, um, no. Not even close.
First I snapshotted the filesystem with all my zm events and images. So they're all safe and sound, and I can roll back the file system if things should go south.
Then I exported the existing zoneminder database to a file. So between the filesystem snapshot and the database dump, I can pretty much recover from just about anything as long as I can get zoneminder to actually install.
Next, I did an apt-get update. Not looking so good:
Code: Select all

I tried following the easy docker install for 1.28 in the wiki, but that was just a giant clusterf*** as my mysql has other databases in it (not to mention my apache instance!) and I really don't want to have to run mysql regular and a separate docker instance of mysql just for zoneminder. But I can't seem to find any instructions on how to install/run the docker version of zoneminder without the docker mysql dependency. (I've since uninstalled docker since zm is the only thing that uses it that I would possibly run.)
Help! Looking for good ideas here!
Thanks in advance!
