Building Debian Stretch Package

Post by dgilmour77 » Mon Jul 11, 2016 1:48 pm

The current debian 9 (Stretch) zoneminder package contains bug #1547 and therefore appears unusable.
The bug has been fixed in the master branch, but the distros/debian scripts on GitHub are configured for an old Debian release (Wheezy) and break in multiple ways on Stretch.
Where can I find the scripts to build the 1.30 series on Stretch - as someone obviously has, since a package exists?
I would like to avoid installing from source on Stretch on a production machine.
Thanks!

You could try the official package maintainer, no doubt he is waiting for 1.30, but it is possible to grab the debian folder from his package building git and use that to build later packages, or at least a start to patch them for stretch.
https://packages.qa.debian.org/z/zoneminder.html See Git link on LHS.
Production Zoneminder 1.30.0 + feature-h264-videostorage
3 Cameras (Dahua and Hikvision)
More Dev VM's than I care to count.
