shouldnt there be a link to www.gentoo.org with details about gentoo and how to install it and then all that could be removed from here .
the pages here would then be either installation of an ebuild or compiling from source ( which could go to a separate page that could be more or less generic )
I agree - I found it strange the instructions where written here too which prompted me to come here. I will remove this now, I am not even sure if there is a point to linking to a distro install at all. I am looking at writing up the install docs to be relevant to the current version. There is a section in there about v4l cameras but I am not experienced with this so not sure what to do. Fatalfuuu (talk) 19:52, 12 April 2017 (UTC)
There is a very good entry over on Gentoo's wiki https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/ZoneMinder - it may be worth mirroring this - or simply just linking out to there? Malakymr (talk) 21:09, 18 April 2017 (UTC)
Does not compile with GCC 4.6
As at 31-Dec-2012, using the zoneminder ebuild located in the overlay zugaina, zoneminder does not compile on Gentoo with kernel 3.6.11 and GCC 4.6.3 p1.8
A solution was suggested that in this forum post, however, I found that the patches, as supplied, did not work.
Zoneminder as of 1.28 has been added into the main distro repo, and works well, currently up to 1.30.0. I have started to look into maintaining this and the docs if everything goes well over the next few weeks. Malakymr (talk) 21:09, 18 April 2017 (UTC)
