RPM Fusion, CentOS install broken slightly

Post by Gorf » Fri Jan 26, 2018 4:46 pm

On a brand new clean install from the RPMFusion repo on CentOS 7. I've followed the walk through and I have disabled SELinux and setup all the databases but when I go to start the zm process, I get this:

Code: Select all

[gorf@zm ~]$sudo systemctl start zoneminder
Failed to start zoneminder.service: Unit not found.

This is what the rpm installed for a systemctl control file:

Code: Select all

[gorf@zm ~]$ cat /usr/lib/systemd/system/zoneminder.service 
# ZoneMinder systemd unit file for CentOS 7

Description=ZoneMinder CCTV recording and security system
After=network.target mariadb.service httpd.service
Requires=mariadb.service httpd.service

ExecStart=/usr/bin/zmpkg.pl start
ExecReload=/usr/bin/zmpkg.pl restart
ExecStop=/usr/bin/zmpkg.pl stop

Is something broken in the install? What I read say that the zmrepo was going away and being migrated to RPMFusion, so that's where I installed from. There are very few logs associated with the systemctl command. Journalctl doesn't show anything.

I discovered what the problem is. The RPM Fusion packages include a systemctl control file that wants mysqld running. My SQL server is remote for my ZM installation. Additionally it doesn't appear that the RPM calls out dependency on MySQL (mariadb) so the mariadb-server package didn't get included.
