Hi together,

here's a HowTo for installing ZM 1.22.3 on Sabayon Linux 3.2.

This is by the way the fastest methode to get a working ZM.

I've needed less then 1,5 hours for installing Sabayon and ZoneMinder.


What is Sabayone Linux?

SabayonLinux is based on the source-based distro named Gentoo - http://gentoo.org. Gentoo is a highly customizable distro which we have used as our base and using their excellent development techniques, we have created a pre-configured distribution with the tenets of Performance, Versatility, and Stability. If you have any more question about what Gentoo is and its philosophy, please visit their website.

Preparation

Download the Sabayon Linux miniEdition, burn it, and install it.

Installing ZM

Open a Terminal and do the following Steps:

# emerge --sync

# emerge portage

Configure MySQL

1.] Edit the /etc/mysql/my.cnf

Search for:

and change it to:

2.] Type this:

# /etc/init.d/mysql start

# mysql_install_db

# /usr/bin/mysqld_safe &


=> Now MySQL is ready for use.

Create the MySQL Database for ZoneMinder

Type this:

# cd /usr/share/zoneminder

# mysql mysql < db/zm_create.sql

# mysql mysql

mysql> GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON zm.* TO 'zmuser'@localhost identified by 'zmpass';

mysql> GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON zm.* TO 'zmuser'@'%' identified by 'zmpass';

mysql> quit

# mysqladmin reload

Configure ZoneMinder

Edit the /etc/zm.conf

Change

# ZM_PATH_BUILD=/var/tmp/portage/www-misc/zoneminder-1.22.3/work/ZoneMinder-1.22.3

to

ZM_PATH_BUILD=/usr/share/zoneminder

change

ZM_PATH_WEB=/usr/share/webapps/zoneminder/1.22.3/htdocs
