Installing and Configuring ZoneMinder on Praxis/Gentoo Linux

Installation

There are currently no official ebuils for the ZoneMinder package. One is available in the X overlay, but that is not covered here.

We fetch ZM from source, and configure, make, make install.

~ # wget zonminder
~ # tar -zxf ZoneMinder-1.25.0.tgz -C /usr/src
~ # cd /usr/src/ZoneMinder-1.25.0
~ # CPPFLAGS="-D__STDC_CONSTANT_MACROS" ./configure \
    --prefix=/opt/zoneminder \
    --with-libarch=lib64 \
    --with-webdir=/opt/zoneminder/webroot \
    --with-cgidir=/opt/zoneminder/cgi-bin \
    --with-webuser=apache \
    --with-webgroup=apache \
    --enable-mmap=no \
    --disable-crashtrace \
    --disable-debug \
    --with-mysql \
    --with-ffmpeg
