As I understand it, Raspbian is a 32-bit OS as supplied by the Foundation.
But this page: https://wiki.zoneminder.com/Raspbian has as Prerequisite #1:
In order of likelihood, the explanations of what I see as an issue are:SD card created with raspbian Jessie 64bit.
1. Newbie is dumber than a rock. He is confused about 32 vs. 64 bits. See Fermi quote at end.
2. The wiki's statement is incorrect.
3. One must build Raspbian in 64-bit mode. Seems unlikely and hard.
If anyone could tell me which explanation is correct, I'd appreciate it.
I want to install ZoneMinder on a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ in anticipation of the Pi 4 which I hope gets 2GB of RAM and USB 3.0 or better. I have all POE IP cameras. Before committing to using the Pi and ZoneMinder, I want to make sure it's at least possible. I realize memory and speed limits are going to limit what can be done with the 3B+.
I'm hoping Stretch is now a viable host.
Before I came here I was confused about this subject. Having listened to your lecture I am still confused. But on a higher level. - Enrico Fermi
