Docker ????

Post by DVB Hardware » Thu Jan 14, 2021 12:17 am

Is docker like flatpak
I have a spare drive and installed MX Linux just to play around with a new distro with Zoneminder

Docker is more like VMWare or Virtualbox. You run a program, and that program runs an OS (or multiple). Technically it's a container I think, but just think of it like virtualization.

MX would I guess follow the Debian instructions, where a repo is added. https://docs.docker.com/engine/install/debian/

Docker is great, but there's a learning curve. Get a book, and take notes. I've read Using Docker by Adrian Mouat. You will want to use docker-compose. I have notes here: https://steakwiki.com/index.php/Docker to give you an idea of what you are getting into.

As for Zoneminder, there are a couple of different docker Zoneminder images floating around. There is an official one linked in the Zoneminder github: https://github.com/ZoneMinder/zoneminde ... ils/docker

There is the dlandon one is waiting for a new developer: https://github.com/dlandon/zoneminder

https://github.com/QuantumObject/docker-zoneminder This one (unlike the other images) manages the DB separately, so mysql is its own container. That seems like the approach I would take.

See its dockerfile: https://github.com/QuantumObject/docker ... Dockerfile to get an idea of what the docker does when it starts up.
fastest way to test streams:
ffmpeg -i rtsp://<ipaddress>:554/path output.mp4
from terminal, and run through paths on ispydb or in zm hcl

I'd have a play with Docker, but not with ZM. You can already do ZM.

Have a look at IOTStack, perhaps.

Thanks guy's , sounds like another learning curve. Too old for that now, will stick with mint
