Excellent. I did join the discussion as suggested. I will wait and test the updated version of zmNinja and see if it is indeed a 32-64bit difference problem. I am looking forward to good results!

For SciLinux there isn't a php5-gd package, just a php-gd, currently it's at version 5.4.16-36. I did see some
errors:

How do you install on SciLinux? Is there a package or do you compile from source?

Also this error is odd

Code: Select all

Does this file exist --> events/15/15/11/14/09/59/03/00073-capture.jpg? I wonder whether you did something to your paths while upgrading?

I installed from the repos, http://zmrepo.connortechnology.com/el/t ... .1/x86_64/

That error doesn't make sense to me as well. My file storage for ZM doesn't use that structure at all.

The first "15" is the monitor ID, I got that. Everything else is way off. I see event ID's under the subdirectories for each monitor.

Code: Select all

[root@hostname 15]# pwd
/export/zoneminder/events/15
[root@hostname 15]# ls -l
total 96
drwxr-xr-x 2 apache apache 8192 Nov 13 10:47 23515

Looks like some part of this is expecting ZM_USE_DEEP_STORAGE to on and I've set it to off.

what's inside these directories? Are they not organized by mm/dd/yy/hh/mm/ss subfolders inside?
If they are not, then your system does not have deep storage enabled.

Let me ping knnniggett again if he knows what is going on since this is a zmrepo issue (thought I thought the URL was zmrepo.zoneminder.com - not connortechnology)

Ah yes, zmNinja won't work without deep storage. I was told its use is mandated starting new versions.

Ok, if that's the case it kind of blows. My system is not using deep storage at the moment on 1.28.107 so updating via the repo did not turn it on. If I can find where the setting is I can switch to deep storage and at least test. I don't usually keep events stored for very long so changing back and forth isn't a big issue for me.

Near as I can tell the Options page doesn't have that setting available. And I pulled up configs.json and it's flagged as a hidden option.

Code: Select all

 "Config": {
                "Id": "13",
                "Name": "ZM_USE_DEEP_STORAGE",
                "Value": "0",

                "DefaultValue": "yes",
                "Hint": "yes|no",
                "Pattern": "(?^i:^([yn]))",
                "Format": " ($1 =~ \/^y\/)\n                          ? \"yes\"\n                          : \"no\"\n                       ",
                "Prompt": "Use a deep filesystem hierarchy for events",
                "Help": " This option is now the default for new ZoneMinder systems and should not be changed. Previous versions of ZoneMinder stored all events for a monitor under one folder. Enabling USE_DEEP_STORAGE causes ZoneMinder to store events under a folder structure that follows year\/month\/day\/hour\/min\/second. Storing events this way avoids the limitation of storing more than 32k files in a single folder inherent in some filesystems. It is important to note that you cannot simply change this option. You must stop zoneminder, enable USE_DEEP_STORAGE, and then run \"sudo zmupdate.pl --migrate-events\". FAILURE TO DO SO WILL RESULT IN LOSS OF YOUR DATA! Consult the ZoneMinder WiKi for further details. ",
                "Category": "hidden",
                "Readonly": "0",
                "Requires": null
            }

So thats an interesting situation. You upgraded from an old repo with DEEP_STORAGE off to new one that hides that option.
I'm not quire sure how ZM folks want you to enable DEEP_STORAGE if the option is hidden. One _could_ directly modify the value in Configs table and then run the zmupdate migrate script --> but I don't quite know what will happen and whether that will destroy your events.

I'm hoping knnnigget drops by.

Rockedge I've uploaded the 32bit package too - https://github.com/pliablepixels/zmNinj ... -platforms

I am downloading and in a moment or 2 I am going to test. Question...is it the same reason the Linux version did not run under Puppy Linux?

Beautiful thing. I am glad to report zmNinja is up and running on a Windows 10 setup. Started immediately so I will setup and put the app through the paces. Thank you so much for looking into it!
I will run the majority of the tests using Windows 7. Also I tried it out with a 1.28.1 running the API. zmNinja reports wrong version then connects and it works!! this ZM set up uses no Authority or login. The stream is choppy but right now it is working on the API from 1.28.1

Going for Windows 7 and the 1.28.108 set up next. So far very impressive!

Excellent, rockedge. Please ignore the "server group" option in the "ZM settings" screen - that is work in progress and it got uploaded by mistake

Yes, its likely it was a 32bit issue for Linux as well. A cursory search seems to indicate the electron folks only provide a 64bit official build, so for now I've updated the README to reflect linux is only for 64bit systems

Rockedge, can you please give this a try for linux? If this works, it was a 32bit problem. I doubt however, it will work with Puppy linux, but please give it a try
