Opensuse 12.3 and newest version

Post by Stuggy » Sat Oct 12, 2013 9:29 pm

I am running v1.25 I think and have been getting the popups about a new version that is available. However, I haven't been able to update. yast etc doesn't show a new version available. Is an Opensuse version available somewhere?

Yast isn't going to show an upgrade until OpenSuse adds it to their repo. This is a question for the OpenSuse developers to answer as it is entirely up to them.

You or some other OpenSuse enthusiast could roll your own custom rpm however...

Yep I've seen the wiki links but I don't think there is a latest build. I also used the MP version. I am used to coding in Windows so in theory I might be able to build a SUSE version but to be honest I'm still working out how it all works.

Hi,

I just updated the repositories with the new packages for ZoneMinder 1.26.4. I'm sorry for for the late packaging but I missed the new version somehow :oops:

If you encounter any problems report, especially when upgrading, report them in the forum, I try to watch out the forums more often the next weeks 8)

Btw. don't expect packages for 13.1 before December. It will take a while to install 13.1 and prepare the build environment to build the packages, impatient people can use my openSUSE build service repository at http://download.opensuse.org/repositori ... nSUSE_13.1 but packages here are build without ffmpeg support.

Have a lot of fun

Is it possible to build Zoneminder with ffmpeg support? I have bought new Vivotek IP camera and I'd like to try this camera with Zoneminder.

Hi,

the packages build against ffmpeg are marked with "MP" in the package name, simply install ZoneMinder-MP from the repositories mentioned in the wiki page http://www.zoneminder.com/wiki/index.ph ... s_for_SuSE.

Due to legal issues it is not allowed to build packages with ffmpeg support in the openSUSE build service. For this reason the best choice is to use the repositories from the wiki page.

I just mentioned the link to my build service repository because it takes a while to setup the build environment for openSUSE 13.1. When this is done I will publish a version with and without ffmpeg support as usual.

Have a lot of fun

Hello,
I just have updated my server with OpenSuSE 13.1 and Zoneminder with ffmpeg support from http://www.liquid-co.de/pub/suse/repositories/13.1/ to latest version and I have several problems:

1) I'm able to setup local and remote camera, but several items in listbox are missing or not visible (for example Source type local/remote) in Czech language in English language are visible.

2) When I start recording (record or mocord) I have a lot of mesages in log with this message:Can't insert frame: Out of range value for column 'Score' at row 1

3) I'am not able to stop zoneminder using web frontend.

Any suggestion how to fix this problems?

Hello,
after hours trying to get latest version of Zoneminder working I found the reason for error message in log. In Frames table is row Score unsigned smallint data type, but after a few frames after starting capture is score -1 populated from Zoneminder to database, so I have changed data type tu signed smallint and now is Zoneminder working, but other issues are still there.

Hi,

you have to set the correct sql_mode for zonemidner in /etc/my.cnf as described here:
http://www.zoneminder.com/wiki/index.ph ... and_Apache

After that restart mysql.

Otherwise ZM won't run as expected. I don't know why they've changed the default sql mode :P

Have a lot of fun
