upgraded from fedora 27 to fedora 29 and zoneminder fails to start

Post by patmansf » Mon Dec 10, 2018 5:09 am

Running zoneminder on Fedora 29 via an upgrade from Fedora 27.

I'm using zoneminder via rpmfusion, currently at:

zoneminder-1.32.2-1.fc29.x86_64

On fc27, I was also running 1.32.2.-1 with no issues, the package showed zoneminder-1.32.2-1.fc27.x86_64

Starting zoneminder fails, in the log files, I see:

Dec 09 21:00:29 umbrella kernel: zmdc.pl[1562]: segfault at 1011 ip 0000000000001011 sp 00007ffcf9f57bc8 error 14 in perl[55bfc0ff2000+1000]
Dec 09 21:00:29 umbrella kernel: Code: Bad RIP value.
Dec 09 21:00:29 umbrella systemd[1]: Started Process Core Dump (PID 1590/UID 0).


Has anyone succesfully run zoneminder on Fedora 29?

Any suggestions on how to get it working?

Thanks ...

Known issue, that has only shown up on fedora 29. Fixed in 1.32.3.

Thanks, I installed a test build (zoneminder-1.32.3-1.1.20181211gitg1e8c4276b.fc29.x86_64 and its related packages), and it's working now

:-D

I did notice there are leftover merge / conflict tags in the README.httpd, these:

<<<<<<< HEAD
If this step is not performed correctly, the web console will appear
mostly empty and/or significantly corrupted post-upgrade.
=======
IMPORTANT: Failure to complete this step properly will result in a mostly
empty or significantly corrupted web console post-upgrade.

Thanks for spotting that. This has been fixed in master.

Note that ZoneMinder 1.32.3 packages were pushed to RPMFusion stable repo today, if you would rather use a release than a git snapshot.

Yes I do thanks for letting me know :)

I've switched back to stable and it's working fine.

And FYI for others, if you need to switch from the testing package back to the stable, disable your testing repo, and then I had to use the the package, version and arch for the install to pull in the stable version. And then dnf actually considered this a downgrade (which I assume is correct).

I had to use:

dnf install zoneminder-1.32.3-1.fc29

And not any of these - they just left the testing package installed:

dnf install zoneminder
dnf install zoneminder-1.32.3-1
