Yeah, it is. The "motion" program does the image comparison thing,
too, and I've had that running fine. ZoneMinder also has controls for

The author has only run this on RH. Another guy has a HOWTO on
porting to Slackware but it's old. I'm porting to Slack 10.1. I
never used MySQL before and ZoneMinder requires it so I had to get
that up and configured suitably. Various other details, including
documentation omissions in mplayer (for testing the 2nd-hand cam, not
for part of ZoneMinder) have led me astray.
Last thing was a problem with shared memory. The docs mention shared
memory problems but not, AFAICS, the particular one I hit. I've been
distracted by a router failure, cold weather and other stuff and
haven't gotten back to it yet so I don't have that machine booted and
can't give you word for word details. RSN. :-)
ZoneMinder isn't a monolithic executable. It's a snarl of interacting
ELFs, scripts, browsers and colaborations (e.g.with MySQL).
