(newbie) zoneminder on raspberrypi

Post by cjvijf » Thu Feb 28, 2019 3:11 pm

Hello,

I am new to zoneminder, and noticed some have it working on a raspberrypi. (I have several running 24/7)

So a few things I wonder about. Did anyone ever run it on a raspberry with Centos 7.x installed? Also, probably because of my lack of knowledge about zoneminder, can I set zoneminder up so that "it does" rtsp over http? Ideally what I would want (can imagine) is, zoneminder accessing the cameras using rtsp and "presenting" through an http port that I can access with a web browser?

(some places block rtsp)

thanks,

Ron

The wiki documents ARM SBCs here: https://wiki.zoneminder.com/Single_Board_Computers
You'll see there that the only documented use of the RPI is with Raspbian, so - Debian based distributions. You are welcome to try to install it on Centos, but you are on your own.

The official docs cover redhat here: https://zoneminder.readthedocs.io/en/st ... edhat.html Looking at rpmfusion.org, it appears that there are builds for armhfp for Fedora, but not for EL dists (which I believe includes Centos), so you may have to build it from source. Instructions for source building are in the official documentation link above. Note that there is no guarantee source building will work. Most people use Raspbian.

My guess is that you can get 1.30.4 to install, but 1.32 might be more difficult.

This is how Zoneminder works. It accesses a camera stream via RTSP or some other means (local webcam, file, HTTP) and serves the camera stream via apache over HTTP.

I think I might give that a shot, and see where it goes.

Where can I find a src tar ball?
