and put the files ... anywhere (cause there is no guidance on that point)
Ross says there are a few new required packages, but does not name them all ... says " The rest can be filled in by urpmi from configured sources" ... no clue what that means. Does it mean urpmi will sort out what dependent RPMS will be needed? Anyhow I proceeded to download the new zm rpm and then do "sudo urpmi zm-1.23.3-1mdv2007.0.i586.rpm"
It fails, saying
Some requested packages cannot be installed: zm-1.23.3-1mdv2007.0.i586 (due to unsatisfied perl(Module::Load))
I said yes to, continue installing anyway ... prolly a bad idea.
Blundering along I click on the few of the RPMS I downloaded, then decide, that 1.22.3 is working dam well enough and stop this upgrade insanity.
Trouble is, now when I run "sudo service zm start" I get this jazz
Upgrade ZoneMinder database: Update agent starting at 08/06/24 23:41:59
Initiating database upgrade to version 1.22.3
Upgrading database to version 1.22.3 Can't find upgrade from version '1.23.3' at /usr/lib/zm/bin/zmupdate.pl line 653. [FAILED]
I figured out how to start the program by using"sudo /usr/lib/zm/bin/zmpkg.pl start" but i fear I loused things up ... any insights as to how restore things so the start script works again?
here's the contents of my /etc/zm.conf
