Hello all,

I want to use my CB 1 with 3 IP Cams and ZONEMINDER for Surveillance. Actually I am using the "old" Linaro build done in Summer 2013.

Zoneminder uses heavily the ffmpeg library. I run from a class 10 SD Card, but have a 2,5 HDD connected, but I was not succesful to move the root fs yet, with the old Linaro build.

I read now a lot about the ARMHF versions, which should be faster, but I am confused, maybe someone can enlighten me.

ARMHF is not compatible with ARMEL, ok. But does this mean that *EVERY* application has to be compiled for ARMHF?

I would like to use a Distribution / Base Image based on UBUNTU 12.04 LTS (because of Long Term Support) and because there are big Repositories with precompiled stuff (apt-get).

So is there a build for CB 1, which I could use? An ffmpeg library compiled for ARMHF should make a heavy performance leap compared to ARMEL....

So, if you know something, this would be great to post it here... :o

Hi, if you want to try, i released a couple of days ago an image based on ubuntu lts. Ffmpeg is working, but i have never used zoneminder, so i don't know if it may do what you need,
If you wanna try here is the post: http://www.cubieforums.com/index.php/topic,1700.0.html
Hope it may do what you need :)

Yes, ubuntu 12.04.3 armhf


uname -a says armelv7 not armhf

OpenSSH Daemon is not starting...

I checked on the console,

during start the OPENSSH Daemon is started about 10 times and ends immediately afterwards.

If I try to start gnome with

gdm start

I get the error message that gnome exited after the maximum number of failures reached...


Tokka

The default is lightdm, not gdm.
I used now putty from win, and it works.
Please, post in the qbee-x discussion for errors :)
