Went to the shop and the C210 is out of stock. Stymied again. Both my inbuilt webcam and USB plugged cheapie will work and save images in various webcam apps but they refuse to work with all the settings i have tried in various zoneminders Pussy, puppy 525, catdudes wary, and both watchdog versions. Later zoneminder versions have settings different to the screenshots you have posted. It is those that i was looking for. Moving about for the next few days so this is put aside for now.

I'm not sure what you mean by "Later zoneminder versions" mine says 1.24.2 from the console, its no more than a month or so old.

I think I found my problem. I booted in recovery mode and got this message;

Starting Zoneminder: DBI connect('database=zm;host=localhost','zmuser',...) failed:
Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' (2) at /user/share/perl5/ZoneMinder/Config.pm line 89

No time to play with it today...

here is my text of pussy zoneminder install run. maybe of use.
my install run shows apache/mysql errors because i had already installed and was running these when i did the install. but it did not affect the outcome adversely.

That does sound worthwhile as I read elsewhere, and here, that it could solve a number of problems which users have experienced.

It's easy for me to say since it's your knowledge and time that will make it happen! Smile

Put it in the folder that all the other squashfs are in and reboot. Open a browser at localhost/zoneminder
http://puppylinuxstuff.meownplanet.net/aarf/pussy/zcowsave.squashfs 90ish MB
nice if someone who has a known working camera could test it. or create a new squash cow that makes it work

the zcowsave.squashfs is for use in pussy. It is only for use when the apt-get install of zoneminer is failing for some unknown reason. Or to try and get the zcowsave to work for me to use. So to test it, first need to install pussy then follow my previous post. It is so long ago that i made it that i dont recall if i had previously installed xampp for the apache/mysql/php.

I got zoneminder running on my project desktop (Pentium4 Ubuntu 10.04) but I've been watching the CPU Resources running ZM (or not) bounce up near 100%. Thinking I need a slimmer OS like Pussy.

For the most part I'm stuck right now, trying to research what card and cameras to buy that won't be a mistake

First try or two with pussy on it I couldn't get anywhere. EDIT; From the old desktop if I try startx all I get is a lacy looking pattern across the top of the screen - hard boot to get out of it. On the laptop PentiumR M pussy displays the pussy operating system with user & pass graphic then loads a bunch of other stuff, the desktop just sits there until I hit enter. [endof edit]

This morning I tried pussy on my laptop, very cool! I haven't figured out how to get my Kensington bluetooth trackball to work and I don't have wired internet - I'll try that next time.

I assume the squashfs is all about running pussy off a HD and that begs this question;
Is there a special pussy download - iso for a thumb drive or can I just take the files off the cd?

My zoneminder/pussy is on my SDcard that i grub boot from my internal SSD.
Pussy is just the files extracted from the iso into a folder. The grub code to use is at the pussy thread. Same frugal method i use for all puppys but different grub code required for pussy. So if you made a grub enabled USB flashdrive then frugal installed pussy it would work. Then put the zm squashfs in the folder too. For hardware issues best to ask at the pussy thread.

I am probably missing the obvious but could you post a link to the URL where the pussy version of the Puppy OS may be downloaded, please?
