I have been trying for a while to get zoneminder 1.22.3 to work under xubuntu (ubuntu version with xfce default desktop). I've installed zoneminder using Peter Howard's .deb for Debian unstable, 1.22.3-6. The DVR card seems to be detected properly; the camera works fine under xawtv. But running zmu produces the following:
I can't get any monitors running under zoneminder: I never get an image, and the link to the device always displays in red (which I suppose must be because there is a problem with it, since the same happened when I pointed to the nonexistant device /dev/video by mistake).
As far as I can tell (not too much, btw ), the card itself seems to be working, because I can see myself in xawtv; I just can't get it to play with zoneminder. There are some errors in zmdc.log and zmwatch.log, as well.
I have just supposed that this meant that zm was running - am I wrong?
zm.conf belongs to www-data; apache to root. I can't find out anything else about www-data: I can't see this user belonging to any groups in the graphical user management tool (and I don't know how to do it from the command line yet). Is this the problem?
zmu -d /dev/video0 -q -v doesn't yet work, though: I still see the aborted (core dumped) message. I hope this won't be a problem for anything else; not that I think it's important right now, I only know that zmu -d ... -q -v is supposed to give some info about the hardware or something like that... er...

I know this is a little old, but I get "aborted (core dumped)" on ubuntu if I try to run that command and forget to "sudo" in front of it.

Run this from the command line:
chmod 4755 /usr/bin/zmfix
Then restart ZM.
I just wanted to echo my experience with Ubunbu 7.04 Feisty Fawn that I needed to duplicate this to get it running. Also, as noted, I needed to use sudo in order to get zmu to run.

I replaced the Card with a Kodicom clone, and now the video is coming and going, video, blue screen, video, blue screen, and I touch the card and it is hot, the card came with heat sinks on its bttv chips, but are too damn tiny, I got bigger ones, but the ones in it, are too damn hard to take off...
Why is soo damn hot??? the prev, Techwell 6805 was cool... but driver is jumpy...
