zmaudit and zmfilter failling

Post by SkippyDo » Sat Dec 29, 2018 8:38 am

New install on Debian 9.

Errors in ZM log file for zmaudit:
zmaudit 14444 FAT zmaudit.pl appears to already be running at pid 10787. If not, please delete /var/run/zm/zmaudit.pid or use the --force command line option. zmaudit.pl
Removing the pid file doesn't do anything.

sudo -u www-data /usr/bin/zmaudit.pl (with pid file removed) produces:
Can't locate Number/Bytes/Human.pm in @INC (you may need to install the Number::Bytes::Human module) (@INC contains: /etc/perl /usr/local/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/perl/5.28.1 /usr/local/share/perl/5.28.1 /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/perl5/5.28 /usr/share/perl5 /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/perl/5.28 /usr/share/perl/5.28 /usr/local/lib/site_perl /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/perl-base) at /usr/share/perl5/ZoneMinder/Event.pm line 39.
Compilation failed in require at /usr/bin/zmaudit.pl line 143.
If I probe for this module I come up with:
libnumber-bytes-human-perl - module to convert byte count to human readable format and back

ZM is also logging errors for zmfilter:
'zmfilter.pl --filter_id=1 --daemon' exited abnormally, exit status 9

I believe that I've now got this resolved. Required re(?)-installing the perl module Number::Bytes::Human.

Seems like there could be better checking of required bits by the installer. I don't recall running across any such issues when first installing 1.30.4. Anyway...

At this point I have no issues related to 1.32.3 that I know of. So, all in all the developers are doing a really good job.

I'm necroing this thread for good reason. Anyone who is installing ZoneMinder for Ubuntu 19.04 is going to run into this issue because the latest package is 1.32*, this is a huge oversight by the maintainer as it renders filters completely obsolete. Hot fixing the 1.32 pkg would be nice.

Thanks for posting your reply over a year ago, this helped me fix my installation.

Edit: For those who came here from google like I did, use this to grab the required package

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install -y libnumber-bytes-human-perl

* see https://wiki.zoneminder.com/Ubuntu_Serv ... der_1.33.x
As of 31DEC19 there is no Zonemiinder 1.33.x package in the zoneminder-master PPA for Ubuntu 19.10

19.04 is EOL.
1.32 is EOL.

For good reason.

Following the instructions on the Raspberry PI 4 wiki, this is STILL an issue.

Before:

Code: Select all

ERR ['zmfilter.pl --filter_id=2 --daemon' exited abnormally, exit status 9]
After:
Nothing, fixed.
